More Journal pages

It seems that all I am doing lately (all I really have time for) is journal pages. That's not a really bad thing, but I hope to get back into other projects! I am doing a lot of material making for school that takes up a lot of my extra time, so when that is done, I should have lots more time! In the meantime, here are my journal pages:


I love the tattoos I put on the back of this lady! My DD is getting a tattoo on her back in January, I seem to be a bit obsessed with tattoos these days. I don't think I would ever get one though.


I love this page! Again, a "tattoo" on the girl's arm. I love the flying pig!




 
Another favorite page, I love the birds! Also I discovered Crowabout Collage Group
and used some of Nancy's images on this page.



Some more Crowabout images, I like the legs on this page!
And an image I cut out from an old ATC of mine. The Asian girl on the right is a tattoo image.
played with Zentangles on an empty spot. Not my forte!


It's October, i thought it would be fun to use Halloween images on my October pages!
The ghosty looking one on the upper left is a transparency. The "death" image is another tattoo image.



I really like this page, because I love the sexy image of the Spanish dancer!
Some Crowabout images on this page too.


I thought I would try a spooky black page. I couldn't get anything to write on the black, so I tried covering the black with white watercolor crayon. That was even worse and my Pitt pen refused to write at all. So I covered it with white acrylic paint (paint dauber) and my black gel pen worked on that. But I need a new Pitt pen! I don't know what is was about the white that destroyed the pen. I did manage to use white gel pen to make some highlights until it refused to work anymore as well. the dog and cats are from Crowabout.

Your pages are wonderful Linda! Good for you for working on a journal. Your use of colour and collage make your journal very interesting to look at and the writing is beautifully done too. Love it!

I am loving all your journal pages, Love how you used the images to help tell your feelings.
on another note, sometime a cotton ball soaked in alcohol will clean your pen tip enough to get it flowing again.

You pages are beautiful! Writing over watercolor crayon can be a bit tricky. I always need to seal mine with a bit of gel medium or spray sealent before I can write on them without ruining my pens.
