Stitching added

So, my friend Steph’s comment on the last blog entry was to try some stitching….and since she is usually right with these things, I tried it out.  So here are the 2 pages, with stitching around parts of the edges and I think they are finished. Thanks Steph!

Journal Pages, stuck

These 2 are side by side…neither feels fully finished, but I’m stuck here.  Any input?

Journal Page

A journal page with a favorite photo I took years ago.  The photo on the left of the page I took looking through a tunnel at Central Park near the Bethesda Fountain.  There was a man playing an instrument in an unusual costume that everyone is looking at.  I just love the way the light floods in.  The geometric image along the top is a Frank Lloyd Wright piece.  The other images are from magazines.  The brown framing is Japanese paper tape.

Using Scraped Paper

You may recognize the orange/yellow painted paper and the boarder trims from the previous post. Here I used them along with a cut out from an art magazine in my mini journal.

Just adding on more pages from my marble covered book journal.  Funny, the photo always causes me to see things differently.  Now I see the blue form under the boy as body-like, with a shoulder most prominent.  In the original, it looks more like he is peaking out over a wall of some sort.  This was a lot of random bits and pieces–magazine pictures, scrap wax paper used to protect surfaces, a birthday candle stamp, and then drawing, painting doodling on top.
