She was a dreamer


I found this old picture of me and copied it and decided it needed to be in my journal. So here I am in my favourite summer attire when I was young, thongs (they are now called flip flops)and pedal pushers they are now called capris and with my eyes closed. I was down in the studio cleaning up because I again dont have my mojo going. I find going through my stuff usually helps and it did. I am also using this as my Inspire me Thursday - submission which is "peeling paint". Which I think I made this photo look like.

  2. Thank goodness your mojo led you to some cleaning -- this page is sheer goodness! Yes, they ARE thongs (as opposed to the panty version) - we always called them that, too ... and pedal pushers.

  4. I love what you did to this photo, Lee! And a great photo it is, too. We used to call them "thongs", too. But South Dakota (where I grew up) was always behind the times.

    I posted a tutorial on my blog for you...

  5. This turned out very nice. I like the name pedal pushers better. :)

    I like what you did on this page. The peeled paint gives a perfect background for your photo. Thank for sharing your art.
