Puppy Poppy Blossom

workshop2 adding extensions - you can't tell it but the lab puppy and poppy has been added to the page. under the puppy it reads "he sat and waited all day for the poppy to bloom". i added texture with light molding past to the background page with watercolors.  linda has really inspired me and has my creative juices in overdrive.

Shadow Work and Extensions

in workshop 2 Linda encouraged us to add extensions, foldouts to make our jrl pages more interactive. so my Love Child from workshop1 became "Twins".  here she is folded out.
and here she is folded into the page.  she now has bright orange glasses with journaling on the inside of her dress. i'm not finished yet! loving linda's class.

Faith is My Key

here is another part of the trade being presented tomorrow.  UU might recognize her heart and above that is a face she sent to me.  thank you UU, you are so generous.  Another artist friend sent me the cloth scribble word "faith" which i added a small key over the "i" to give more texture.  grandma's buttons are here too.

Crazy Morning
