Gesso and crayons

I have been struggling for a while to bring balance into my life with enough time for my art. The name of my current journal is "BALANCE". I had a promo piece for my daughter's college art gallery show in the back seat of my car since May. It finally made its way into my journal with some fun watercolor crayons! My daughter showed her Honors thesis, DeZign magazine, a mag she created for design students.
I did a "before" and "after"... I love making a mess of the page after everything is glued down!

Hello, Summer!

Welcoming Summer, even though it feels like late Summer temperatures! Enjoyed a few days at the beach, and then in the mountains. These pages have been a work in progress. First, background in fall colors with leaves that didn't look right, then layers of red hot paint and white swirls, and finally some alphabet stamping and collage. I had fun adding the painted piece of map. Heart Tag is from Lynn Perrella's collage sheet.
