Journal Pocket Page

Journal Pocket Page, 2014
Mixed media on Strathmore drawing paper,  9" x 11.5"

This page began with a piece of wallpaper glued to Strathmore drawing paper.  The pocket is the same paper folded and glued to the surface. The page was then embellished with torn yellow tissue paper adhered with matte medium, Prismacolor watercolor pencil circles, and splatters of paint. The quote is done in Farber-Castell pen and watercolor pencil.  Artist trading card watercolors are stored in the pocket.

New Cards

Mouse and Opossum, 2014
Watercolor and Micron pen on Strathmore, 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"

These drawings are part of the daily journal work.  The mouse's background is wet watercolor covered with plastic wrap and allowed to dry (difficult to see with the drawing).  The background for the opossum is kosher salt added to wet watercolor.

June's Journal Pages, 2014

The media in the drawings are watercolor, deli paper, Prismacolor colored pencil, and Farber-Castell pens on Strathmore drawing paper.  More and more I like the idea of incorporating several boxes over several days.
