What Is Your Story?

Today, I made a double page in my journal.  I love how this process unfolds!  When I started, I wasn't sure what it would be about.  After I laid down the initial paint and some texture, I decided that it needed some photographs.

So, I went to my photo program - initially to print off some landscapes or some other scenery.  But, these girls caught my eye.  I painted these when I was in Sharon Tomlinson's online class.  I edited them to be black and white, then printed them and sprayed them with fixative.  Then, I collaged them on.  Still wasn't sure what exactly the theme was to be.

Well, I've started writing the story of my life and family - what it was like growing up in the 50's and 60's. (I read a "Dear Abby" column that the older generation should do this for our kids and grandkids)  So, once I saw these girls, it made me wonder just what their story would be!

You are having lots of fun! Those are wonderful little pages, don't you love the way the ideas come?

I finally got the transfer process to work on gessoed paper. I haven't completed the project, though.
