A Couple of Journal Pages

The little page that's up above here developed as I played with a new kind of tranfer. The transfer was only partially successful so I decided to enhance the tree with paints. I have always loved Robert Frost's Poem " Two Tramps in Mud Time" and this page just reminded me of it.

The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You're one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,A cloud comes over the sunlit arch,
A wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you're two months back in the middle of March.

This page just developed from playing with some gel medium and gold leaf. More playtime!

You can double click on these and get a super close up view if you want to!

I'm really drawn to the second one! The words are wonderful & I love the way the gel creates such a lovely organic texture right down the center. Great job!

Your journal pages are stunning, but I really love the last one where you were just "playing". Wish my playing looked like that. :)
