What I have been doing...

Well I have still been trying to take things easy so cannot spend
too long bent over my art desk, had to do these in stages. I am
really happy with the fact that I have about 5 different art journals
that I am working in at the same time. They are different shapes
and sizes so if I want to work smaller then I get my small journal
out, if I want to have a background already painted then I have a
journal that has pages already painted just waiting to be worked
on. This makes it more flexible and more fun.

The page above was in my journal that already had backgrounds
painted. I added some background stamping, some tapes, my
focal image, border sticker, title word and then finally added in
my journaling. I really like how this page all came together.

Now the page above is in one of my journals that is blank, just
waiting to add collage elements, paper, tapes, stamps etc to it. I
had found the image of the girl and knew I wanted to use it, just
took me some time figuring out how to do the background. I got
the fortune the night before and knew it was the perfect thing to
add on my page. I just love this page, sometimes I have pages
that I think are OK and some I just love, this is one of those pages.
