Happy Valentine’s Day………

Happy February 14th!  I did get some lovely red roses and a box of Dove Chocolates.  We weren’t going to fall into the commercialization trap….but he did anyway!  🙂 I’ve been busy this week preparing a journal for the round robin group that I’m participating in for the next several months.  I’ll be sharing spreads of the journals  as I receive them.  I have to send mine off to the first person on my schedule by the 25th of this month.  I am using a Canson XL Mix Media journal.  I’m not really happy with it….the paper is really thin for me….I’m used to working on heavier papers.  Here’s what it looked like before I covered it:IMG_0481

I used some phone book pages, brown kraft paper, and other scraps of paper that I painted with bold colors.  Then I tore them into pieces and glued them onto the front and back of the book:

This is inside the front cover:

Then, I was playing around with some black paint and painted these faces….one, I tried to jazz up with a little paint:

   This last one, on some kraft paper, I ended up painting over her.  I tried to correct her eyes and ruined it….but I kind of liked where it was going before that happened:

    I’m working on my journal today. Yours looks so bright and happy, and I like the faces. The last one looks great! It reminds me of the loose style that Mystele does which I’d love to be able to do.
