Elvira's journal - Hands of an Artist

This is my page for Elvira 
Thank you to all of my fellow art journalers.

Being the last one to work in this theme I wanted my hands to be different and I tried to capture the way fellow artists work in each others journals- It comes from the heart, we need to overcome our own concerns and trust that our work will be received as we mean it and bring joy to the owner of the journal when it gets home but also to our fellow artists along the journey. Its a privilege to work collaboratively in this way.

and these other pages are just a few from all of the wonderful women who worked in this swap

So many beautiful interpretations created

I just adore the texture in this page 

It was a pleasure to journal with these talented women.

I just finished an All Hallow's Eve wedding page this morning.  I've got ideas for Sadie's and Shari's, probably get them done tonight.  Will post pictures of all three pages before I do a bundled mailing to Marie.

Lucine for Loren: Halloween in Wonderland

Three art journals I will mail to the United Kingdom today. I finished the last art journal I had. It's Loren's with Halloween in Wonderland as theme. There are very nice pages in this journal. Here I share with the page I created for Loren. I wonder how I could mix Halloween with Alice in Wonderland. I assumed Halloween in Wonderland must be a mix of Halloween and Alice in Wonderland. Love this theme as it is another challenge to be creative in a very broad way. Vivid colours can be used on both themes, but one can choose to do Alice in Wonderland in a vintage look. Loren's art journal has black pages, so I used a lot of white in addition to collages. I hope Loren enjoys this page.

Haiku: Lucine for Sadie

Great things about a Round Robin is that someone's art journal passes you. You challenge the theme of your partner and share your page with others. I received Sadie's art journal a couple of weeks ago. The theme of Sadie's art journal is Haiku. So I will create an art journal page for Sadie in her Haiku art journal. Yes, I had to look up what Haiku was. Once heard of it, but I could not remember what it was. It is an interesting poetry style. I came up with several Haiku's and I share my best Haiku's with Sadie in her art journal.

These simple words
life hope trust
where to find

We and trust
it will be found
in our nature

We and hope
it will be given
me to you

We and life
it is given
take and share

Mi Mariposas bonitas
mi te quiero
en mi corazon

Mi Mariposas bonitas
voy a ahorrar
ahora y siempre

Mi Mariposas bonitas
mis hijas bonitas
vivir reir amor

Translation in English:
My beautiful butterflies
I love you
in my heart

My beautiful butterflies
I will carry you
now and always

My beautiful butterflies
my beautiful daughters
live laugh love

Sending love to all of you♥

Light through the cracks

Not much to babble today. Just two art journal pages based on the title of this post. 'Light through the cracks is the title of Ann's art journal. I have older post about the art journal round robin @ milliande. So I had to create a page in Ann's journal; it is a small book, so I created a double page. I like the title and I recognize it in my life. My Moleskine art journal was nearby and I did a page for myself. We have those days in our life and it is a relief if and when we see light coming through the cracks. Blessings to all of you^_^

The Missing Journals Returned

It was like a reunion on the weekend,

I reunited with some old friends-

There was Sadies beautiful Haiku journal
and Ex has done a lovely summery spread in it.

There was a page for Mary
and Anne's Light journal-
no page from Ex in Anne'sjournal

And Loren's Halloween journal
with this page from Ex.

Thank you Ex for sending them on ,
they will soon be continuing their journey.

Anne's Nature Spread for Marie

Woo-hoo,  Marie will soon be getting her journal (now it's waiting for ice to clear from the ice storm we're in so I can get to the post office)!

I used gesso mixed with acrylic for the base background,  lots of stamping for the "brush", acrylic, ink, and more stamping for the tree.

Sadie's Pages in Beth's Journal, "Bygone Era" page 1

Ok, I admit it. I can't do these posts right -- EVER! For some reason I could only get the second page of Beth's journal to display. So now here's page 1 -- I hope. Enjoy Beth. We'll get through this yet! xoxo, Sadie

Nope, it didn't load again. Beth, maybe you can post it for me? If I sit here all day it won't get to the PO before it closes!!!!!! Grrrrrrr!!!!!

I'm sure now that the image is too large, but have no idea how to resize it. So if someone could walk me through the steps I'll run this thing to the PO then come back and resize and hopefully post to this site. Whew! xoxo - Sadie

Sadie's Pages for Beth's Journal "Bygone Era"

Beth, your pages are finally ready! I hope you like my interpretation. Unnfortunately, the pages did not scan very clearly. I will be off to the post office in a few minutes. Then surely by the week's end you should have your journal in your very own hands again. And it is indeed a fabulous journal. Peace, xoxo, Sadie
