This is some of my "stash" I bought at the museum store, at SF MoMa. At the bottom of this photo, you get a little glimpse into my latest journal. I made this in Kelly's class, "The Storyteller", which I took about 2 months ago. I have been slowly working on it. The photos below are some of my most recent pages in this little book. If you get a chance to take Kelly's class, do! It is a GREAT class!
The photo above is a shot of the front and back covers of this little booklet/journal I am currently working in. All of the rest of the photos are of my journal pages in this book. This is what I have done so far...
Another 2 pages from my little booklet/journal. I have so many colors! I have worked into these pages paint, Caran 'dAche and Portfolio crayons, and markers.
2 more pages from my journal. On the right side of this page, if you look closely, you can see my handprint in the background.
These pages have metallics and an interesting paint that I worked into the background: Golden's Interference Blue (fine). It gives off a rich, metallic look, an almost silvery sheen and there is a bluish-purple tint that seems to give these pages their color.
On Friday night when we stopped for a dinner break before continuing on to San Francisco, I worked on these 2 pages above. While we were waiting for our food to be served, my husband had his head in a book, a familiar scene I have witnessed for almost 30 years! And I whipped out my journal and started writing. Sitting across from us was a table full of nuns! Since I have naked bodies in my journal, I was very mindful of not flashing the nuns these pages. Having them in such close proximity to me brought back memories of me being in Catholic school! And I kept imagining my soul resting in Hell for an eternity!
