Temporary New Direction

So I was introduced to a little photo technique called "TtV" "Through The Viewfinder" photography, from my friend Julie Bergmann, (check her blog out here). The process seemed fascinating to me, so I started looking into it.
 It involves using an old box camera, a digital camera and a cardboard tube to block light. The point is to be able to take pictures that have the old school quality of a 620 film camera, but do it digitally.I found a Kodak Duaflex camera on Ebay for 10 bucks. To buy the film, have it respooled, and processed, cost me over 30 dollars, so I am hoping to be able to do just that. The camera I bought is in mint condition and it takes great pictures, so I will still do that from time to time also. Here are a few of my favorites from the process. I still have some tweaks to make in the tube, but it's coming along.
 But since I have purchased 2 new cameras, and all the "stuff" that comes with them, I have not spent a whole lot of time doing any journaling. So tonight, after hubby is off to a weekend men's retreat with church, and the boy is in bed, I finally had a chance to do a little art journaling. 
 I love these two pages!! My new friend Kimberly, (who is an amazing artist as well, check her stuff here), said they reminded her of a "big stick" ice cream. I agree!! The colors are tasty!
