JOURNALING PAGES...


Some more journal pages I've been working on. Wish the pages wouldn't buckle so much but them's the breaks!

The theme is still travelling - where we've been, physically and emotionally. What makes us happy. Of course, the sea the sea the sea makes me happy! So a mermaid rising from the depths toward the full moon (a colored pencil workup for a painting that didn't turn out), and a sea turtle (a photo of a painting I did on yupo a long time ago).
And then we had to choose some travelling shoes. Since I'd rather be barefoot, I chose these blue crocs - roomy and easy to slip off when you have them full of sand from the beach...or full of leaves from a forested path. The words don't mean anything to anyone but me to LK said to overlay them or scribble them so others can't really read everything - which is what I did after drawing my travelling crocs at the bottom of the page, floating in water...perhaps a rogue wave came in and took them while I was building a sand castle on the shore.
Working on more ideas LK gives us to choose about 3 photos that say: home, family, something that touches our heart but we don't know why, something beautiful in nature, something cute, and so on...

Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting, Kathy. I love your egg series!! Such color harmony you have! I guess for journaling you just dig deep and see what comes to the surface...
