Although still heavily influenced by Lynne Perella's work, I realize how much I'm making her collage style my own, and each piece I do seems more authentic. How's this for bumper sticker philosophy: "Be Yourself. No One Else Is More Qualified For The Job."
Anyway, here is the page I did for Daisy:
I began with watercolor paper, gessoed it, added some texture (too much, as it turned out....have to revise my way of doing that....too lumpy), and lots of color with the water soluble oil pastels. The cityscape was made from some free clipart I downloaded, but mostly random bits of leftover paper from other projects.
In this journal we decided to do one page, so the reverse side could be whatever we wanted. Again, gesso, texture, color, images, and a few words from me!
