This Journal Thing




it has sort of bitten me, and I sometimes do a misc. page or a face, I do the misc. page when the little scrap pile gets quite big next to me then I think use some of that up. Actually what happens is I cut more and it is bigger when I am done with the journal than it was before. It is just part of collage.

The other day I was looking at ancient art, mostly for the jewels, and pretty soon I was doing this face. and it does have some writing on it and some sort of really faded that you can't see.

Tonight I decided I didn't really like it that much, but in a journal you don't have to love every page. Tonight I layered some photos into the painting, degital work, a design from a book and a garden photo of orange lilies. this worked pretty well.
It feels like a rescue, and I will add this to the journal also.

I think this is beautiful. I love Egyptian things and I find this to be Egyptian looking. The color and the texture give it an aged appearance ~ looks like something you would find in an ancient tomb. Very nice, Emelie!

It's beautiful Emilie. I learn from you every day. Sometimes I feel as though I existed during the Egyptian days. When I watch documentaries about those days, I am just mesmerized about how they lived. I love your journal work, awesome. Have a great rest of the week.

Love the beautiful, soft colors in this. You're inspiring me to get to work in my own journal.
