Journaling Reads:I had never been to the opera before the 2011-2012 season when my niece, Bailey, began performing with the Michigan Youth Opera Chorus. Suddenly, I'm attending my third opera, I Pagliacci, at the Detroit Opera House where Bailey played teen Nedda alongside my friend, Tammy's daughter, Grace, who played 10-year-old Nedda. The conflict between comedy and tragedy made for a great show.
Some observations about the process and products:
- Stampin' Up paper...my fave
- Hand journaling is hard for me. There is always so much more that I want to say, but when I hand journal it, I run out of room. Sigh.
- The I Pagliacci embellishment was cut out of the program and then pop dotted.
- For a one photo layout, this took me a long time to design. Not a quick page this time around.
