Page Process...

I admit I've never stopped, while making a page, to take photos. I've always been shy, but lately I've tried to put my journaling out there. You are all so kind and perhaps even as curious as I've always been...so...

I was collageing a page after finding a long-lost glue stick I liked (yes, I cleaned up a bit!), and thought since there was some interest in "the process", I would be brave.

Thanks for looking, and for all of your comments. And thank you, lori, for encouraging these photo shoots!

Here's the first layering, with 5 different papers, some cut, some torn.
Then I played with a dramatic focal picture, and felt like putting some paper lace behind her.

I just got this new days-of-the-week tape {love} and was thinking by now that I'd write about my Long Week when not feeling well. I put a vintage style tag in...

And then I wrote....

Art journaling means experimenting and not being critical, but I think I need to put a circle of something right below her for balance (in my Capricorn-logical head).


I have more than one journal going on at a time. I also have more than one magazine being read, and more than one book started. Hmmm. What does that say about me? :D
I also know that I will be painting pages and backgrounds of pages very soon...
Have a happy weekend! What are you doing?

You have done such a lovely job. I used to be into mixmedia and journaling a lot. Seeing other people 'playing' makes me want to make a mess on the table, and glue page after page together. (although I used to stitch it mostly instead :) Looking forward to seeing more. Wishing you a lovely weekend! I am having such a full family-weekend, and of course there is the football, and a village fete nearby. Must go, the children would not have it any other way :) x

I can relate to that! I seem to have several journals going all the time. I sometimes wish I would just stick with one until it's filled but there is something about starting a new one. New ideas with plans to fill the whole things with different variations etc... This is a wonderful journal page! Thanks for sharing(O:

Yes, I have several journals going also. I love what you are doing with this one! What am I doing today. I am nursing a terrible cold! I haven't had a cold is a long time and I am making up for it. But it's a good excuse to blog surf all day long!!!

Pretty cool! I used to do collage a lot but it's been a while since I've done anything like that - mostly due to moving around a bit and packing up so many of my supplies... Happy weekend to you!

I am so impressed with your art journaling Kathy, really. ♥ I only wish I could put my ideas into a work of art like that! Keep it up girl! :)
