I had a computer breakdown, and the pictures I took of my last journal were all on there. Luckily I had saved most of my photos elsewhere, but lost the journal ones and all my photoshop ones which I was most annoyed about. I just didn't feel like taking the photos again, and have moved on from that book now anyway. So I thought I would make a quick reappearance here to share some of my current pages. I love drawing and painting faces, and also using old books to work in. Lynne always inspires me too and I had a thought of all her wonderful faces when I started this book the other day. It is not really a journal as I am not writing in it. I want to fill it up with faces. I don't know if I will manage it as there a lot of pages! I am using watercolour and a bit of gouache. The book has Russian text and a pretty cover. I have no idea what it is about! Hopefully something good. If any one reading this knows Russian perhaps you could enlighten me. The paper is pleasant to paint on, and I love the decorative look of the text. Some faces are made up, and others done from photos.
