I haven’t had much time for arting the past few days. I finished this piece last weekend. The collage pieces are cut from painted phone book pages. After gluing the pieces down, I used a brush with black India ink to outline everything. Then I decided that was too stark and softened it with watercolor crayons and oil pastels.
Today in the mail, I received the sewn journal I won a few weeks ago. It traveled all the way from Norway to Arkansas. I can’t make out the spelling of her first name but you can visit her website: ( http://www.scrowlscrowl.blogspot.com/) .
She has a video on her site of a current journal that she is working on…go check it out. Here are some of my favorites pages from the journal:
