frida round robin journal

Still going on the Frida Round Robin. This is my entry in Tracy's Journal. Her theme is a visual diary or a secret diary.
I decided to do a page about Frida's Communist beliefs. The two excerpts are taken from her actual diaries.


The pages were painted with two shades of red acrylic paint. Then smudged with lack ink pad. The image of Frida is taken from a painting she did in honour of Leon Trotsky. I added the hammer and sickle with black pen. The flags are found images from the internet. I drew the line with black pen also. The images are outlined with graphite pencil.

I love the depth of these images--they have Frida's intensity. :)

Merry Making!

Really liking the Frida interpretations and diversity of the art! For some reason, I cannot load the links for joining the blog hop. Could you send it via email? Thanks so much, Gina (svenskfru@yahoo.com)
