Aw, thanks for such nice words everyone! Working this way is more personal, and it's nice to know that it's not just me who likes it, if you know what I mean. Cheesy

A arty journal-a-long would be awesome, that's a great idea! It would be such an inspirational thread, especially if we shared techniques and things. Smiley

This sounds a great idea - as long as we didnt have to commit to too many pages in too little time, just work at our own pace.

Your style is so developed phizzy and your different pages all still fit together - Im not sure if I could get that cohesion!!

How do you do it? Do you sit down already with an idea in your head? Or just start something and see where it goes?

A come-and-go one would be best I think. Since it's impossible to force a page if it's not ready.

Sometimes I try to get the pages to look quite different...but they all seem to blend together without intent Cheesy Typically I never have an idea until I've washed the page with colour. Though with the olives and buttons page I drew that out first in ink then went in with the colours.

The inspiration for that page was that I'd been to the market and bought those two things Cheesy Just shows that inspiration can come from anything! Tongue

Oh wow, this is such a great style. A little bit eccentric, kitschy maybe, I love the color pallet used.

I always admire and am in awe of people who can do altered journals!  I don't have the patience/talent/creativity to do something like that!  *hits this rocks!* Cheesy
