You’ll probably never know…

my art journal pages were inspired by a couple of images from a wonderful card and special paper swap from the lovely and talented Madeleine Schineis in The Netherlands

(with special thanks to LaWendula for the many swaps she continues to organize … I believe there is still time to sign up for the December “Yummy Papers” swap here)…

the girl with her long tresses caught in the train door really spoke to me as I have had long hair for much of my life…

the delicate bird image on the right hand page was just perfect too…

(here is some of what went into my pages: a chocolate paper, black and white rub ons, cotton gauze, music fabric tape, metal button, acrylic paint, white Signo gel pen, black marker and black  Stabilo Woody)

  13. Very nice, Patty. I was so intrigued by the gauze and your flowers that I didn’t even see the birds until I read below them. Nice work.

  18. Your pages are fabulous, love the colors and all the details. Especially the use of the cheesecloth.

  19. Sorry I’ve not been around much lately. I finally got my head out of my basement so I could stop by! These two pages are incredible. I love them. That image of the woman with her hair caught gave me chills. I’ve had long hair only once in my life, and would never do it again. I applaud you for keeping your hair long. I can see why you were drawn to the image.

    Of course, the cheesecloth caught my eye and I was very impressed with the way you used it, including capturing that button. Lovely and brilliant.

  20. I have enjoyed some of those papers from those swaps….and you have used yours so well! I always love your art Patty, so fresh and inspring!
