Paint Party Friday

If you haven't checked out Paint Party Friday, you're missing out on some fun!

Here is a mixed media collage that I had been working on a while ago and just yesterday
I added a few new layers of sections. 

two watercolor flowers on transparent paper.  I will be adding these to a collage at some point.

ink drawn flowers that I will add watercolor to after the fixative dries.  Then these will also be added to a collage.

And, remember those other two pictures that were in progress from last week?  Here they are with a few additions:


Owl added.  Sometimes I add things or change things up a bit and then after I do so, I'm not sure I should have done it.  This one doesn't seem balanced or interesting enough.  The empty space next to the giraffe on the left?  Or maybe the layout is too predictable? I don't know.


                                                More doodles at bottom.  Not sure if it helped the composition at all.

Your journal pages have such a beautiful quality to them, I can't really put into words what I mean. I just really love them. Really beautiful!

all the pieces are wonderful to see. I love your idea of painting on transparent paper reminds me a bit of adhering napkins to a journal page because they become somewhat transparent, a lovely effect and layer.

I like the negative space next to the giraffe. Your work is so happy! I love it that you make a lot of your own pieces for your collages. Great work! Happy PPF!

I really like all of these! The giraffe one is looking really good. I just wouldn't call it finished quite yet. Needs just a little something more, maybe? The owl doesn't seem as integrated into the whole as the rest, but that's jmho and I only mention it because you asked. :) I love how you use your own drawings in the collages.

Loving the ink flowers and water color flowers. Thanks for the heads up on ink fixative....didn't know. As for your collage it is beautiful in it's composition and choice of colours. All very beautiful!
Happy Easter : )

I really like your mixed media collage! It's wonderful to look at with all of those layers. The giraffe piece is looking GREAT! Maybe after the owl gets colored in the blank space beside the giraffe won't bother you as much? And your watercolor flowers are beautiful! They will be gorgeous no matter where you add them. :)

Thanks for sharing your process- that's one of my favorite things about blogging- we all have our own methods and I adore being able to peek into the process. I agree that the giraffe piece is looking great, just not finished yet ;)
Happy PPF (a day late ;))
