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.

New Small Works Collage

Playing with some handpainted backgrounds, photos, fabric bits, and magazine pictures resulted in:

It kind of surprised me coming together as it did, but I’m quite happy with it. It is a small works piece….5 x 7.

Butterflies and Chihuly

Two pages from my mini-journal where I used pieces of photos I took in Central Park and in the Botanical Gardens years ago during the Chihuly exhibit.

Bunny Walked

“Bunny walked a long way before she found the light at the corner diner.”  There’s really not much to say after that 🙂

Just getting silly in the journal with photos I’ve taken, a magazine cut out rabbit, letter stamps, gel crayons and hand-painted paper.

Things I’ve been up to

I saw Teesha Moore’s video on her quilted journal covers and thought I’d try my own variation of it.  I had dyed paper towels from past watercolor projects and used one to create a single square and then adhered it to the cover of a mini journal I’m working in right now.  I also used colored staples and some scribbles 3-d paint to add details.  I don’t know that it is done…but I’m happy with it so far.

The next 2 are just other pages in the mini-journal that I’ve been playing with.  The images are all from photos I’ve taken and then just adding ribbon, chipboard, stamping, borders, paint, stickles, etc.

Time in Miniature

Theme Thursday’s challenge is to create a miniature piece and One Powerful Hour’s challenge is “time”. Time is a favorite theme (and frequent struggle for me) and the restriction of creating small helped to make it feel “doable”.  I created this 3×3 “Forever”. The background paper is handpainted, the next grid image is one of my photographs taken several years ago at the Bronx Botanical Gardens.  I took the  photo of my husband and me also that same day at the gardens.  The “forever” lettering is from a book of USPS “forever” stamps.  Thanks for looking!
