Visual Journal Page.

Hello Everyone,
Welcome to my new friends, hope you enjoy following me.

Here I am with another double spread for my Journal and Brenda's Feb link up of her 'Visual Journey' record. I try really hard not to think about what the page should look like, more towards where I want to go with my Art.....so far I have no answers that is why I have left the text open ended.
But looking at it now it could be finished off as -This Year I will... 'Smell the Roses.'

Apologies for no steps but my Journal is more about me than anything else and I do not want to pause frequently to take snaps.

The roses were cut from a magazine and blended into the Bg with gel medium and Charcoal pencil.


The Bg has Gesso, Acrylic paints, tissue paper, stamps.

 Challenges:  The Mixed Media Monthly-'Think Pink' sponsored by Ellen Hutson.

Smiles:)

Oh I honestly never considered taking photos for steps :) even though I've seen it done many times.
Is that a stamp in white around the edge? It looks lovely

So lovely - I love the white skeleton leaves in the shadows around the edge, and the drifting petals are a wonderful touch.

Stunning pages Sue, the red roses with the darker background creates so much drama and there is so much depth as well. Love the idea of finishing off with 'smell the roses' it fits perfectly doesn't it?
Thanks so much for continuing to link with me on your own visual journey, your pages are a great source of inspiration to me.
Have a great week.

Hi, Sue - your page exudes roses, my favorite!! Love your "smell the roses" finish....as I certainly can do so through these beautiful images.

Thanks also for your wise words on my "Hold on or Let Go" post. I have revisited my piece on the blog and in person, and find it not too bad, lol! And very much appreciate your thoughts on a journal page - reinforces why I am trying this format, which I find very freeing as it is all good! xx Lynn
