More from Kim's Journal

Here's the other page I did for Kim, I wanted it to be much looser and free and show a contrast between the warm reds, oranges and pinks.  So I kept the background mostly black and white to emphasize this carefree spirit.....

 And here the first page with the pop up glued in

I should be getting Tammy's page sometime this week...can't wait to start playing with black, tan and white!

Orange, Pink and Red- my first page for Kim....

So here we go with this round of traveling art journals!  I got Kim of IM Girl's book a couple weeks ago.  It took me a while  to come up with an idea, but I did and I've been busy ever since.  Actually I came up with two ideas and since she gave us plenty of pages to play in, I'm taking the liberty of using both.
Her color theme is Orange, Pink and Red and of course flowers and women are my favorite things to paint so I went with it.  I painted a background a la William Morris with idealized zinnias and chrysanthemums and then painted my "Flower Child".  I'll be glueing her in pop up format after I'm done with the next page, but at least you can an idea of what it will look like.
 So that's where I am in the Round Robin.  I plan to finish up by the middle of next week to get it on it's way to Gemma. 
This is SO much fun!
Hopefully I'll be back soon- I'm trying to get back to regular blogging it's just that things are so, SO crazy these days!
