Lady Churchill Page Challenge from Green Paper

Last Friday Jill told me about a challenge on Green Papers blog site.....She gave us three elements..and here is my result....It was a lot of fun to work on a project that had a short time to complete.  I learned quite a bit...and think there are a few things I would do diffently.  I started out with her three pieces.  A photo of Lady Churchill.  A bird trading card...and a Merchants National Bank check.  The orange background paper was created by my friend Jill.  A piece of antique hand made lace...old map...German gold foil tidbits...The compass in the upper corner seems off place to me..too stark and should be moved down near her shoulder....So that is it.  Not sure if I will enter it in Green Papers contest with it.  But I have learned so much from doing it.

New Discoveries

Here are a few pictures of my recent finds....can't wait to share them with the girls this week.  The first is "The Baby's Opera"  full of music and bright pictures. Very delightful.  the second is a school book in Russian I think.  Dated 1913.  Beautiful drawings and the text is unique.  I can't wait to see what all of us have come up with over the last two weeks.
