Journal Project

Did I tell you that I also made a leaf pattern from a wallpaper border?

This layer of the journal page is finished but I will be adding a word or quote or something like that to these pages. You know, just a bit of inspiration for the recipient. I save that part for last.

Well, I don't save it for last.....I just save it until it happens. Know what I mean?

I have one more scroll page to paint and then I will do something else. I don't want the whole book to be scrolls and leaves. Although I am having a great time with it. And I do think I'm getting the Tuscan feel and color to it.

Guess what I keep thinking about? OK, I'll tell you. My next painting will surely have scrolls and leaves ...... most likely....probably.....(I do believe Norah'S tumbling around in the attic again)

To answer a question in comments, I did remove one page between every two and the finished book will have 34 spreads which includeds the inside front and back cover. I hope to be finished within a couple of weeks. I love love and thank you all so much for comments. Makes my day!


I really don't get much ART time during the week because I seem to have become addicted to a couple or three evening TV programs. Oddly enough they are all about doctors.

So, today at the desk, I'm about to work on finishing a little mail art. Maybe I can show you that tomorrow. Trying to get this in the mail.

I don't think any of this is what I intended to yak about but I have yaked too much already so....
More later,

  4. your work is absolutely gorgeous! It's a treat just to stop by and see it. inspiring!

  5. Thanks for the info about removing the pages. I need to get back to alterning books which is sort of where I started with all the collage stuff.

    The colors you are working with in this one are beautiful.
