Elvira's Travelling Art Journal - Hands of an Artist

This is my page for Elvira 
from our 15-15-15 Journal Swap

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.

Jan's Travelling Art Journal - Just Three Words

 It was a pleasure to play in Jan's lovely handmade journal.

Just Three Words
is her chosen theme so that leaves the field wide open to do as you please really.

I added a extra piece so I had more room to play

and I used a Jessica Sporn stencil and lots of texture and layers.

I took it out into the sun to try and pick up the under layers more clearly.
