SOUL JOURNAL - collage pages 3 and 4



These are pages 3 and 4 of the six collage pages we have done (the 'finger pages'). I really must leave them alone now because they have driven me a bit crazy. I have gessoed over them so many times and re:done parts of them that I discovered lots of interesting layers when I scratched through the nails!!

I'm happy that I've played around them though - I've learnt a lot about techniques. and other stuff .....ie who am I trying to please with these pages?
The answer is me. (I just struggle with that a bit, but I'm getting there.....)

This is looking great - and you are absolutely right, just PLEASE YOURSELF. This journal is going to be something to treasure.

Linda these pages are divine! I think from gesso'g over them and changing bits like you have done has created such depth and layers and charm.

I've ticked to box so perhaps you can e-mail now? Something else I don't really understand? Can you tell me how I get Sarah's instructions? I'd love to get started on some journal pages for next time i take a break.

These are gorgeous pages. I like them better than mine! This always happens to me. I go looking at others and they look way better than mine that I want to go back and start over. Last night I posted an altered mirror. Swing by, check it out.

These pages are fabulous! I realy like the depth of them. I wish I could do that. I'm not good at thinking outside the box. You are so inspiring. But, I need talent to go with it. GIggle!

Surprising what you find when you scratch the surface so the multilayered layers are a metaphor for lots of things.

WUNderful!

I love how you have scratched through the layers Linda... really effective!
I am a bit slow on my pages (all in different stages of being finished). Just finishing off what I call my hand page at the moment so will post that page soon.
I am absolutely loving your journal pages, they are so inspirational.

Linda, I just love your work! I'm so excited to see all the different things you are posting. I have received my JAM card and am real happy with the way it turned out. I've never done one of these before, and didn't know what to expect. You and Jaqi made it really something special. Thanks.
