Journal page

I started this page back in July at a collage class with Diana Trout. I covered pages with gesso, torn magazine papers, and drew a grid in the thick gesso. Just the other night I opened up to this page and added a little more background color, stenciled the feather and pattern with acrylic paint and then glued the strips of washi paper. I haven't decided if I'm going to add some journaling -- a quote I found about a feather -- but I am going to color copy it to glue to the cover of the journal.

DLP, Weeks 41 and 42

Last week's challenge was polka dots. This week: stars!
Polka dots were created with a circle template, acrylic paint, white pen, colored pencil and painted deli paper circles.  The stars: peerless watercolor and Faber-Castell Pitt pen.

Documented Life Project

Starting this project a little late, but better late than never, right? I was just introduced to this, so here are my first pages of my dlp planner.

I love drawing sunflowers and I love writing with white pens on black paper -- so I combined the two! The week's challenge here is using white pens.

Combining collage and lettering grids

I started some collage pages in my journal when I was at CREATE NJ last month.  During the workshops I realized I didn't have a lot of collage papers with me so a lot of the pages were unfinished.  When I got home, I added black gesso and some lip quotes with gel pens to this page. Just having fun!
