Journal Page Swap


Life
5"x7" Journal Page
(Click on the rose to see the details.)

One of my art group's swaps this month asked that each contributing artist create a 5"x7" journal page with a zetti-themed front side.  The second side of the page is to be "artist's choice" and something totally different from the front side.

Once again, this is a traditional cut and paste collage layered on a water-colored background. Many of the images have been recolored and/or embellished with gel pens, watercolors, paint pens, Prismacolor pencils and lots of doodles. I must admit, I really LOVE doodles!

The second side of this page is coming "soon"!!!

May your day be filled with joy!

I so love Sunday night. Look forward to your colorful pieces. This one is no exception. Those eye lashes are killer and the shoes are adorable. Gotta admire a gal who wears patterned hose and socks together!

Terri, Love to enlarge your creations and search for all the little hiddens. How long does it take to create one of these little masterpieces? The details, or your doodling, is like the difference between using skim milk versus heavy cream in a recipe. Your "cream" is delicious! xo, Sue
