Journal Page - Side #2

Dreamer
Journal Page
(Click on the open sign to see the details!)

As promised, here's side #2 of the journal page swap that I posted previously. The requirements for this page were that it should be different from the first page's Zetti theme, and it should also be something out of our comfort zone.

Although I love Steampunk, I'm not very knowledgeable or comfortable with it. This page seemed to present the perfect opportunity to have a little fun and try my new wings.

May you have the courage to try something new today!
Credits: Thanks to Moonlight Journey for the image of the man and the green, striped border. Also thanks to Tumble Fish Studio @ DeviantScrap for the background, clouds, buildings and patterned borders and to Crowabout StudioB @ DeviantScrap for the "open" sign. Special thanks to Julia @ Ceremony-Etsy for the heart and to Sherrie JD & Evelyn Ducote's "Steampunk" for the top hat and wings. Butterfly is from Dover Publications and the rose is from Pringle Hill Studio.

Superb!! Terri, you are amazing. Most people have to serve an "apprenticeship" to achieve modest results. You just leap in there, art tools at the ready and you DO IT. Amazing. Simply amazing.

This piece is stunning in every way. One of your very best. Take a bow.

I came by to comment earlier, and Blogger was having one of those hissy fits. It's no secret I love all the color in your art, and this one is no exception. Side 2 is every bit as lovely as Side 1, but in a very different way, of course. I really like your interpretation of Steampunk, a style I have yet to try. It may be out of your normal comfort zone, but I really love how you have married every detail together so flawlessly. Those clouds surely have a very steampunk lining, too.
