This is where I want to be right now. :)
I love working on backgrounds in my journals. This one is done with gesso and a paper towel, then fluid acrylics on top.
I was playing around with my fan brush and Sumi ink, adding it to many pages. This next one started off with Sumi ink, which isn't permanent so to avoid smearing it I was tried using Portfolio Oil pastels over top and had a lot of fun with it.
This next one too is with Sumi ink and oil pastels. I love how the fan brush leaves lots of white spaces in the brush strokes.
I have just fallen in love with all things teal. Here is a background with 3 layers of different teals (or turquoise).
Teal and mauve, why not!
May I present ThE FUnKy GyPsy
I was inspired to work with stencils after getting the second issue of Art Journaling from Stampington. Love this new Journaling magazine!
It also inspired me to use my sewing machine. I used text pages from my Russian text book to create this star spread. The star is fabric sandwiched in the paper then stitched.
I got some new music. One of my favorites is Herbie Hancock, The Joni Letters. It is wonderful! He has a lot of guest singers, Nora Jones, Tina Turner, Joni Mitchell and my favorite of all is River with Corrine Bailey Rae. Oh so beautiful!!!
