Some art journal pages for Elizabeth's T party
on Tuesday...visit Altered Book Lover to
see what it's all about!
Above, you may notice a collage (on the right)
that I previously made for T Tuesday.
I glued it across the gutter of two pages in
one of my journals. I added another
tea bag wrapper in yellow, and the
actual tea bag. I was delighted when
the tag was pink!
I also added some sparkly lemonade on the left--
literally sparkly. It is from a Valentine that a dear
friend sent...and also is a lovely pink!
I repeated the design from the security envelope
paper (in the collage) by drawing more of
the 'hash marks' onto the pages.
Repeating a design element
helps unify the pages.
Above, a page that sat for months
with only the bird glued to the page.
The kleenex box leaves seemed to work,
and the page came together...
Below, a collage from ephemera--
most of which I did not draw. I
added the white cloud and some of
the black flowers. Stickers and
scraps of printed images make
Above and below, a sketch of a bluebird from a
photo in Birds and Blooms magazine...
This page also sat for months with just the
bird drawing on it. For this, I think it
waited until I had scraps in the 'right' colors
before I was ready to finish it...
The Wrap-Up is posted on
for my Fake Journal 2014.
Hope you will stop by...
hope your day is
