100 Proof Press and Genuinely Jane Studios Hopping Together...

 Hi there - if you are following along with the 100 Proof Press and GJS blog hop you are right in the middle of it!  Your last stop should have been at Irit's blog, and your next stop will be over to Emily's.  But for now you're here... I altered two books for this hop.  I wasn't quite sure what my themes were going to be until I got started.  Here's the gear book... it quickly turned into a book of gears and quotes from daVinci (yet the cover is Galileo).

gears and eyes
I didn't realize until I started writing this post how similar my books look, yet the sentiment and inspiration that I used to create them were totally different (guess the yellow paint was still on my table).  This the my house book.  The theme on this developed a little too late, so I didn't get to include all of my ideas.  The large number "460" is the street address from my grandparents' house, and I  started filling the book with thoughts and photos stemming from that place.  The cover has my grandfather's grade school pictures on it. The other "pages" I stamped up some quotes I like.

Thanks for stopping by.  I really enjoyed using the Genuinely Jane books, once I got started I didn't want to stop not even to let the paint dry!  Be sure to leave a comment here because one lucky visitor will win one of these stamps from 100 Proof Press...  Happy Hopping - Next stop is at  Emily's blog....  And if you need to start at the top of the blog visit the 100 Proof Press Blog.

Emily Hammann said...

Love both of your books Sara!! I've done similar things... like having parts of projects look the same because the theme was on my mind, or the products were still out! I love both of them, because they are both so very different! I've had a blast doing this hop with you ladies from 100 Proof!! Hope we can do it again sometime!!
