Altered pages



These pages all have paper napkins and my home made stamps for decoration. The bottom one has some of my handrawn images that I photo copy then use them as transfers, that way I can repeat them on other pages. I never start out with a theme, I just put down colour and go from there.



I've finished my pages in my current ABRR and sent it on today. I find when I'm working in the book, my journal pages tend to reflect the colours I'm using in the ABRR, so Ursula if you read this, your pages are quite colourful. I had to tone my colours down for Judy's book and for Marie's, but I let my hair down for Ursula's and Megan's books. I'm now waiting for my next one to arrive. There are eight of us in Australia and seven ladies from American, we receive a new book each month. We get our own book back in November 2008 so we have to be patient and not show our work until them. I'm amazed at the diverse range of styles and the fabulous work that everyone is doing, it's like receivinga present every time a new book arrives. Bring on the next one.

Ro, as usual your pages are wonderful. I was studying the beautiful stamp along the right edge of the top page and surmised you made it...then I read the confirmation.
Amazing pages that inspire!

Simply stunning pages, Ro! I think I can guess which parts are the stamps, but I must confess I can't tell which are the napkins! Where do you find such cool stuff to incorporate into your colorful art?

Your pages are stunning Ro! I love your use of color. The journal round robin sounds like it is challenging and exciting too.
