Thoughts about ART

These two pages are from my Dina Wakley mixed media journal on the watercolor paper. The sentiment is one that I have used in one of my journals from a few years ago. I thought I would give Maxine a new identify which is one of Tim Holtz paper dolls. The second page is an image I found in a recent magazine at the office. I think it is suppose to be Audrey Hepburn but hard to know as I didn't take time to read the article. I did, however, change the original image by replacing the picture she is looking at by using one of my own frames and a snippet of my own made "art paper" using alcohol inks. I think I will do a few drawings myself of this figure - I love it so....

Don't the new hipster stamps from Tim Holtz make you smile?! When I stamped the goat and ostrich, it made me think of my husband and me as a couple. I think the quote is perfect....

A few favorites....

I absolutely love Dyan Reaveley's journal made by Ranger!  Oh my goodness, you have the freedom to use all types of mediums - super nice!
I tend to make background pages using different colors, stencils and stamps.  Then later, I make my journal pages that work with the backgrounds I made. 
I wasn't sure what to do with the pink/red and bits of green but then Christmas called out to me.
This has become one of my favorite pages that originally was a bit of a nightmare.  I turned the too dark purple into a lush deep midnight blue - perfect for angels.
This spread was done using paints instead of inks. It's a challenge to letter on top of paint - so I probably won't make too many pages using paint, however, I did like how this turned out.
