New art journal pages

I finally caught up to my word count. Its taken me a week to do so, but it feels good. I have writer 16,680 words so far.















Here are some journal pages recently finished.

















Here is another page on change, that is some of my paste paper on the right.












I have been trying to finish up a moleskine and here I even did the inside covers.

The found poetry says
My soul
what treasure
do you hear
with imagination

I enjoyed working on these pages, I used an old set of oil pastels, not the water soluble ones. I can blend them easily, they were fun to work with. I thought of putting something in the window but then thought its like you look into the window to see whats inside. The whole book becomes the inside.












I had to do an election page since I was so much a part of things. I collected images from the net and added some journaling on my experiences. So much hope now it needed to be recorded somehow. Do you believe I forgot to buy a paper on Wednesday.

I have a lot of golden paint and the one thing I run into is having a color in the heavy bodies line. Decided I wanted some Cerulean Blue Deep in the heavy body version. Michaels wanted 16.99 for a 2 oz tube. Yikes.. even with my 50% off coupon it was 8.50. I hope I now paint some masterpiece with it. I wonder what is so special about this color that it costs more than the others. I guess I will never know.

I love the journal pages, Kate - especially those top two. Images of doorways and steps always seem to speak to me.
Congrats on the word count. Mine's pretty low - I've stopped looking at it for now, lol. I'll just keep on putting one word after another though. Good luck to us all.
