Through The Eyes of an Artist -- Circle Book

With no appointments, and plenty of food in the house, I was able to spend the day working on pages for Valerie's Through The Eyes of An Artist journal.


Still creating under the influence of Lynne Perella's workshops, I did two very heavily layered and textured pages, using black gesso, water soluble oil pastels, acrylic paints, some clipart, rubber stamps, embroidery floss, stencils......in other words, lots of supplies.

I'm pleased with how these pages turned out, mainly because they came so naturally and easily to me. I do think I'm settling into my art niche, a collage style that really speaks to me.

Hopefully Valerie will feel the same!
