Numbers Altered Journal Pages

Perfect numbers like perfect men, are very rare. ~ Rene Descartes

I'm back in the Altered journal racket again. The ladies from Altered Gypsy are having a swap. You can see the start of my journal here (pardon the bare accessories). I received my first book to work on, a few weeks ago. Yesterday I brought a pile-o-supplies upstairs to play with while the kids worked on homeschool work. This worked out quite well. I'll have to do this again.

Barb's book theme is Numbers. Her book pages were already made of gorgeously designed paper (can't remember the company) and I just enhanced them. I used the quote above on one of the front pages. (The right side folds out to reveal the other spread.)

I'm close to thinking its done. For now. I may set it aside for a few days and then take a final look at it to see if it needs improvement. Any suggestions?

I was contacted by my local Etsy group to see if they could use my Halloween Banner Tutorial to put up on their KCEtsy blog. Of course I was happy about that! You can see it shown on their blog, and in the meantime take advantage of entering their drawing for this week's free prize from a talented Etsy artist. I love buying from other artists. I usually do a big chunk of my Christmas shopping at Etsy. I'm slowly adding to my supplies store and arts store found on Etsy as well. I'm looking forward to a wonderful Christmas season.

I like the blue door and the colors are great. How about a little touch of texture? a little piece of cloth or ribbon? or glitter?

I like the numbers on the leaves, I'm trying to figure out what to do with a bunch of leaves I collected, maybe this will inspire me :)
