Journal Pages! January 1st and 2nd

January 1st: Yes! Layers and Layers and layers and layers. I painted, then painted, then painted some more... I glued a bunch of magazine photos down, painted again, then I wrote a bit, then I painted again.
It was fun, a bit of jump-starting my brain on this one. I think the next couple I do will incorporate the magazine collage and painting. I don't over-think so much, I just sort of automatically glue things down. It was fun, and liberating, and everything that I wanted this journaling experience to be.

January 2nd: Fly Away. More layers of collage and paint. I took the idea further and attempted to create a little girl with cut outs. It feels a little Alice in Wonderland-y. Her hair was the most fun.

These pieces came out a bit darker than I thought they would, but I'm okay with that. It is all about the process for me, right now, the experimentation and the mess.

The darker colors make the other colors "pop".
