journal work & flowers

I've been keeping up with working in my art journal every day and some days I love what I make, others, not so much.  Par for the course I guess.  I've been keeping in mind Lori's floral challenge for May and while not all my pages have a flower, many do.  Here's a few of my recent pages.

Remember the restraint journal?  It's my inspiration book, my quick and dirty collage book, my instant art gratification place, no paint, no markers, just inspiration photos/catalog pgs/online art and random papers to clean up my desktop.

 A reminder to work on a single topic, in a series.

 I love flowers in my clothing too!  (flowers #17)

LOVE this vase - a scrap from a failed painting at the bottom and the gray piece to the right of the vase is actually a shiny silver paper from a gum wrapper.

Art Journal:
Flowers #18, 19, 20

Added some beads for fun and dimension.

Found some long unused colored pens so tried them out in a simple drawing.....

Flowers #21 & 22 - a little zentangle....

That catches me up for the flower/day challenge.  And, for the first time, I'm joining Marcia's Just Journals week long sharing of journal pages.

  9. Nice journal with no paint. I enjoyed seeing pages in it. Lovely composition. I am in love with Day 18's flowers. Of course, I was impressed with the page where you found the long unused pens. Lucky you. Like shopping, only without spending any money (grin).

    Love, love, love especially playing with circles. I love circles. I looked at it for a long time. I like the palette and composition and at first I thought you stitched the little out parts of the flower, I like the raggedness too; seems natural. INSPIRATIONAL as always love love I'm going to dream about circles. I love circles too. Blessings Terri http://morningdewdrops.com
