partner journal

I am involved in a partner journal with Wendy in Australia. These are the eighth set of layouts that I have done. These layouts are in Wendy's journal.

The theme for these pages was hopes, dreams or aspirations for 2010 or beyond.
They both have gesso backgrounds with water-soluble crayon colour over the top. Both have collage elements. Hand lettering has been done with white Signo Uni-ball pen and Sakura sparkle gelly roll pen in the roses page, and black Pitt artist pen and coloured pencils in the wings page. The wings and flourishes in the second page are stamped with black ink.
I think I will try something a little more vivid in my next two partner journal spreads. Mmmmmmmm! Have to think about that!

Love the added wings on the woman leaping from the raft - letting loose the last old life preserver and unafraid of where she will soar to and eventually land.

your book pages are gorgeous, how long does it take you to do them? I love your book wraps too by the way!

Thanks Guys! Carole, the length of time varies considerably. The collaged pages are faster, but you have to wait for glue to dry. The ones with text on them can take forever. Especially if I have done fancy text. Sometimes I have to go over the text, and over, and over... sometimes I outline the text in a different colour. I haven't ever measured exactly how long they take because I do them in little spurts all the time. Leanne.

I love the soft effect you have achieved - they look very dreamy.

Very serene, and so neat!
do you think blue can be a color of passion or disgust?
I like these pages very much.
Happy days,
