At the top, you see the final scan below it,
of the Alphabet Journal Page "V is for Vintage"
I don't always do this, but just feel like it
sometimes. Here I have scanned
a first look at the colored with watercolor
pencils and applied with waterbrushes
journal page to "study" and
make decisions about how I will
finish it and liven it up with my watercolor
You may agree that the original scan
looks weak in color and values..
well, that's what I think
because I like the final
to have more punch...
Buying this old scrapbook in
my old home town was so
exciting to me--who made it and
what her life was like will remain a
mystery that I can imagine what
I like about.....

he has his Halloween teeth on and a red glass
bottle in his lap. The verse I made up is
a take off on "People who live in glass houses
shouldn't throw stones"...
He comes a day late for an
Easter page--never the less..
he's here now...

This spread started with the #191 Challenge
of drawing paper money---then
I decided the spread should go up
to the top page too--I purposefully
did a Jan Brett "how to" video Dutch
Bunny to get something up
there. Then did the
Polish Chicks from pausing live ones
moving around in her video...
the dark background with the chicks
told me to add two other dark areas
to balance this---the Chinese symbol
is for Properity .....the black bird becomes a
"money is the root of all evil" symbol---
the running ribbon was added to
enhance page flow...the pencil, sketcher's
homemade bombsite and the tack
and hanging tags were fill in
design additions......the writing up
top, was planned to be there ....
that's how it all came to be.
