Portraits in pastels

adding a ruby's portrait to my journal. I had a band of ochre honeycombs to start. I don't know Ruby but she is inspired by the beautiful portrait Anne Bagby did in the "True Colors" book by Stampington. She was working in Keely Barham's black journal. It is still one of my favorite books. Not sure where my journal spread will go from here. A quote maybe. Did I tell you I love my journals lately? I couldn't live with out them now. :) I find they are becoming more an expression of me the more I work in them.

I know the feeling, I cannot go a day it seems without doing something in my journal. Great pages, love the soft look.

Love your Ruby! You have inspired me to keep at my journal and, for that, I so appreciate it. I love your journal pages; so free with wonderful expressions of you.
