Visual Journal

Tonight I started a new visual journal. Yes, I really did need another. It's not about needing, it's about wanting. Wanting a challenge.

I am inspired to alter this book using instruction and guidance from a booklet that Juliana Coles offered on her Etsy shop. It is from one of her Extreme Visual Journal workshops.

I followed the homework assignment which was to make your name as big as you can and decorate it. So that's what I did. Of course I had to use a napkin. Thank you Julie for the beautiful napkins.

Painting faces without sketches shall be my personal challenge for this visual journal. I want to be able to just pick up a brush and paint a face. Concentrate while brushing the paint on and seeing the face before it is painted. And that is what I've done. I consider this page finished. But if the mood strikes and I feel like adding more to this page, I will. Tonight, I have done enough. But in the future, it may not be
enough,
Sharon

  1. Hello my dear friend Shron! Did you skip the A or am I not seeing it? Of course you needed and wanted a new journal. Don't we all? And what a glorious journal it is going to be. Everything on this page is wonderful. You showed already that you don't need a pencil, the face is alive and amazing.

  4. Your journal is so beautiful (and I dont think you can have too many journals!!!).
    Love how you have incorporated the napkins (your own personal stamp) and the decorated name...fantastic. Might have to try a page like that myself. You have inspired me (yet again!!!)
