Oliver Jeffers

I'm going to start an Oliver Jeffers fan club. Wait a minute, I better make sure there isn't one of those already... OK and here's a video about the Heart and the Bottle App!

More on "Finish This Book" by Keri Smith

Collage by Lani
Come on over to my blog for the next installment of my "Finish This Book" experience, which I am totally loving!

(Also if you like my collages, and like to play with collage and photo-manipulation see the eCourse in the right hand column of this blog.  It may be just what you are looking for.)

Having a little Collage and Fotoshop Fun!

Collage for Digital Whisper at Ning
 I posted this over on my blog but it's worth repeating here in case you missed it.  There are some nice links here.  It's all about Digital Whisper which is a very interesting looking Ning group.  (Thanks William Charlebois for this link!)  They have a lot of inspiration, challenges, links, support, and other good stuff.  

And for more exploration in combining photo manipulation and collage, please consider the eCourse which is starting next week.  (The discount for blog readers is over on the right hand side of this post, just scroll down a tiny bit and you will see it.)

The above piece came from this image from Moonchild which is the background for the current challenge.  (I can't wait to explore the other challenges):

Couldn't you just get lost in this spot for a few hours?  Oh, yeah, wake up Lani.  So then I added an old photo, a collage sheet face from ArtTeaLife, and a texture from PaperWhimsy. So much fun.  Thank you Bill!

Something wonderful is going to happen today.

This came from The Brave Girls' Club email this morning...
So do you ever have one of those magical days, that start off with a sweet little warning or reminder like this in the old in-box and gets better from there?  Well today is one of those days around here.  A book showed up on my doorstep, a very mysterious occurrence and when I began to look through the  book, I had to stop everything else.  It seemed to be a book about a person who is naturally curious about life and connections.  She loves to spend time in the library, making connections between various books.  Right away I thought this is my kind of heroine!  Then she finds a book and needs help completing it.  Very mysterious.  So I find I'm reading about a curious person who finds a book much like I found this book and of course I want to complete it.  And this entails a bit of sleuthing training on my part, going out on morning walks, collecting odd bits of information and evidence, which all goes into this wonderful found book. Hopefully soon I will be trained and will be able to finish the book.   Here are some of the adventures so far:

I found 3 naked Burmese boy dolls in an antique store.  (Did they ever have clothes?)

I found this odd sign very carefully posted upside down.  (Who did that? Was it a joke, a mistake?) 
The book came with a disguise and some instructions on what to do. (Fun!)
A little bug I found on my morning sleuthing.  (Is Halloween coming?)
 Maybe you remember the fun we had here at 14 Secrets with Wreck This Journal?   After several of us had read and wrecked our copies of Keri Smith's Wreck This Journal we made our own journals and created several round robins which you can read about right here.

 Well, I can imagine that this new book of Keri Smith's (Finish This Book) is going to be even more fun.  It is so far!  Can't wait.  Want to see more of what is inside?  Click here!
