Cloth Paper Scissors and Journaling


I had the privilege to be able to write an article for Cloth Paper Scissors March/April issue. The magazines assistant editor Barbara Delaney was so helpful it made the process a pleasure.
 After my article on page 70 there is a reader’s challenge called “wild wire” you should check it out and maybe give it a try.

I have had the urge to do a little journaling lately. This first one started as a drawing of a Blue Jay then morphed to what it is now.
 I think it’s funny and one of the best parts of journaling is that you can break all the rules. Look at the shadows the light is coming from everywhere.

Just simple playing with ink and paint can be so relaxing.
 Emerson new the truth!


Teesha's journal.................

This next journal I learned from a U-tube tutorial by Teesha Moore. It was fun to make, I love her process of techniques and her bright colors. I tried to stick to her instructions to the letter on the big one and then went off to make the small one a bit of my own.
 
I will be taking them on a vacation soon because they are light weight and not so big that you feel you need to journal in the same book for the next 20 years. Thanks for reading my blog, I do appreciate it.

Okay, this confirms it. You are so gosh-darned talented in so many areas that I hardly know what to say. The article is an amazing accomplishment, but your journal pages, well, they are stunningly beautiful! Please bring all of your journals to the Orange Dream Monkeys in a couple of weeks!
