Before and After

These are the covers that I uploaded earlier. There are subtle changes to the images and I added text to both. Let's see if you can find what images were added to each cover. (It really won't be hard...)

Wings To Soar

Another cover to my Journal Junkin' book. The book is a tri-fold, so when you flip the front cover open, this is what you will see. It still needs to be journaled on. I made a huge mistake with the paint I used to cover this. It has a glossy finish and it was extremely hard to shade. I better pay careful attention next time!

Journal Junkin' Cover

I'm taking a Journal Junkin' class (see link at right) and Nancy Baumiller is taking us step by step through the process. The cover is made from cardboard cracker boxes that have been taped together and painted (hence, junk!). The cover isn't finished; I still have to shade it and then journal on it. If you love Zetti and love to journal; check out the link!

Back Side of Journal Page

Believe it or not, I had a helluva time figuring out where to put the damn words! Do you think this page reflects my thought process just a tad?

C-R-E-A-T-E Banner

These are 6 separate 4 x 4's that make up a "CREATE" banner for a swap that I'm in. Many people are putting danglies, but I'm not quite sure I want to do that. Suggestions?

For a Challenge at Crow About

A belong to a group called Collage Play with Crowabout and each week they have a collage challenge where you have to use the items provided to you. Most of the artists do their collages digitally; I can't because I do not have a program for grabbing the images. I like cut and paste anyway, but boy, what these folks can do with the computer is just AMAZING!!!

Image is 4x6, not large at all.

Last two for swap!

I had to make 5 Heart Skinny pages, so here are the last two. I wasn't thrilled with the color of the background paper I made on the one above, but I wasn't about to make it over again either. I challenge myself, every time I make something, to use everything on my table...scraps, cut out pictures, strips of paper, etc. It's my way of lessening my carbon foot print. So, I used the back ground paper the way it was and tried to make "light" of it.

I love this one!!!!!

Heart Skinny Pages

Here are 2 more pages for the Heart Skinny Book swap I'm participating in. I like these 2 better than my first one. I think I'll go back and add some more to that one. I'm also going to make one for MYSELF! I feel like I'm forever giving my art away. Yet, if I don't participate in the swaps, I don't always get motivated to do art. Does anyone else have that problem? I'd love to know...
