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!
