Art Journal Angel


Medieval angel inspired by a tiny photo
in an old book, of an illuminated parchment.
Felt pen, watercolor and white gel pen.
My art work is done over reproduction images 
 of vintage perfume labels, thus the words
peeking through the watercolor...


Above, journal page using a color copy of
a face that I drew myself.  The large flower 
on her head is a sticker intended for scrapbooking. I
outlined the shapes within the flower in pen to
make the page cohesive with my additional
drawings, using felt pen and watercolor.


Scrapbook paper collage, above.


Pen and watercolor...how do
you find the time for everything 
you want to do?

Thanks for stopping by...
I'd love to hear about 
the art that you create 
 on your journal pages...

  14. Guess you saw what has preoccupied my previous two days. And art was at the very bottom of the list until late in the day.

    Your art is always beautiful, but that first one is exceptional. I really like how those perfume labels show through your watercolor.

  20. I love your flower girl the most! She is beautifully drawn and painted! I also like the unhappy face in your journal next to the household chores - as artists we should never have to be bothered with such mundane tasks!! Happy PPF!
