Ramblin' Around the Page....

Whew! I have so many things going right now that I'm not sure whether I'm actually getting anywhere or not! The problem is I have a couple of things I've done in the past few days that I can't show you yet. They're for small swaps I'm doing and I don't want to spoil it for the recipients.

I do have several journal pages in varying stages of completion but none of them are totally finished. I have one that is probably 90% finished so I'll share that one with you....

I'm working on loose pages of Bristol 
that I will bind together at a later time.

The scanner cut off part of the left side but I think you can still see what I'm doing. I have a template of different sized circles and I used it as a stencil a few days ago. There was quite a bit of ink left on it so I just plopped it down on a sheet of Bristol. I loved the colors and the design it made so I decided to use it as my January 1st page.

To begin, I drew around all the circles. Then I mostly doodled all around. I plan to darken some areas and maybe even add a bit more color. This is probably partly influenced by Traci Bautista's free class at Strathmore. But I always like to doodle and just ramble around the page.

This is another partially finished page. 
I'm doing this one for Jan. 2nd and The Rose Parade....

It's about halfway done. I'll share both of these pages again when I finish them. Now it's back to the many pages to complete!
