Journal 2008

I've finished the first page of my Journal 2008. The fabric is hand-painted and printed with plastic bubble wrap. (The photo doesn't show the real colours, they are more green/turquoise.) I've been playing with photoprints - great fun!! The handsome young man on his bicycle is my grandfather. The photo dates back to late 1890!! I've also copied some of his medals, and a piece of a paper bag from his shop. He was famous for his blend of coffee.....
As a very old man, he used to tell us a story from one of his bicycle-races. He got a penalty because he was cycling so fast on the countryside-roads that the cattle was frightened. ...

I like the one with the cattle :-)
Will it be also part of the TIF challenge, since you are in the color palette?
