Art Journal Pages

Remembrances of my grandmothers...
Watercolor background, scraps
of painted papers and scrapbook papers
in borders, with some pen work.

Notes from an art textbook, below.
Couldn't resist adding some sketches...

This art journal seems to be filling
up with more writing than the previous journal.
For me, it's  usually more about the art than
the writing. But I do like to get
information down in a place where I
can locate it again, and that's my
art journal!

Collage and Drawing

Mixed media collage on a 4 x 6 index card.
I buy them in a spiral pad so I can take 
them with me. I can work on them 
while on vacation or while waiting
for someone to get done with
an appointment. More fun than
looking at outdated magazines...

A drawing on ledger paper, with some
stamping, purchased tags, and
triangular banners of scrapbook paper,
and painted card stock.

A sketch for some canvases I am thinking
of painting.  3 tall skinny canvases, but
grouped together as one composition.
Colored pencil in my visual art journal.
The right hand larger circle is a light blue. 
On my monitor it is too pale...
trying to use mauve, browns & tans
with accents of blue & purple.

Yesterday's post gave me some trouble,
and I don't know if it was Blogger or
operator error. It will disappear and
this takes its place.

A bit of a dry spell right now,
but hoping to make progress
and get into more drawing!
