using leftover Gellis to finish a UFO

Do you ever abandon projects, leaving them as UFOs?  You know, UnFinished Objects.  Must confess to you that I do, occasionally . . . today in the art room, under a pile of partially used Gelli prints, I discovered an origami wallet fold book.  It lacked a cover, and its pockets were pitifully empty, so this happened--that pile of leftover Gelli print pieces?  Definitely enough for a little book cover and some ATC backgrounds.

Here's the cover . . . it's a little over 2 1/2 by 3 1/2, because inside is the orgami wallet fold book pages, the pockets being the perfect size to hold ATCs . . .

Oh good grief.  Do you see what I see?
Make sure the image is glued down before putting it in the pocket!!
This one is my favorite.   :)
This, along with a brief organization tip, is my share today at Altered Pages Artsociates.  The theme this month is LET'S GET ORGANIZED, and there have been some really helpful hints.
Happy Thursday, everyone!  :)

Isn't that ridiculous? Easy enough to fix, too--but you know, of course I didn't notice it until after the blog post, lol! :)
