Paint Party Friday




I've been working on a journal for Kelly Kilmer's journal workshop.  These are leftover papers from my stash and they have been taped together to form a journal.  So, next I will add further focal points, background and embellishments.  This is the very start to the journal. 

And then, I have this painting that is in progress that I'm not happy with and will most likely gesso over the flowers in the center.  ughh...  anyways. .. that is what I am working on.

This one is a watercolor doodle with black marker on top.

Very excited to have found a link to your blog from Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's! I live in Racine and am happy to see you are also from Wisconsin! Your journal shown here is marvelous...I especially like your use of stenciling. This is something I've wanted to try in my journal for a long time! I look forward to reading more of your posts!

Hi
Taking part in my first ever Paint Party Friday has meant that I have access to blogs that are new to me.
Seeing artwork such as what you are creating is inspirational.

Found you last week at my first PPF and love seeing what you're doing. Since I'm just starting to art journal, I particularly like seeing your pages develop. I like the use of the patterned paper in the center - I may just have to steal that idea! Really like your watercolor dabblings!
