November's Journal Page is Done!

November's Page - Ancient Echoes.

I haven't worked my pages in order, which is in stark contrast to my job where things must be done in order. And sometimes it's good to shake things up, creative-wise.

The fossils are nautiloids - sort of a flat nautilus. My sister the geologist called this particular specimen a graveyard and I suppose it is, but I don't like to think about it like that.

Pardon the flash - I'm still learning to use my new camera.

Another quote for today comes from Ralph Waldo Emerson: We learn geology the morning after the earthquake.

Wow, Any -- your title for this exquisite piece is right on. That is an amazing fossil specimen and you did a great job on composition and beading, too.

Can't tell I like it a lot, right?

WOW!!!! I'm liking this fossil and how you embellished it to show off its beauty! It's probably a good thing for you to allow something in your life to be "out of order." Go for it!

Thanks for the kind comments, all. This page was a challenge, but in some ways much easier than the other ones I've done.
