Another page in Maya's journal. I finally got some Caran D'Ache water soluable crayons thanks to Lara who found a Junior set at Tuesday Morning for a dollar. I had fun trying them out. I'm starting to get more comfortable playing in this collaborative journal. I just let go and played in it like it was mine.

I collect...lots of stuff. This was a fun page to do. After I finished it I thought of adding old stamps and printouts of book covers. The photos are all of my family. I was the recipient of most of my grandmother's photos and those of two of her sisters along with my uncle's. I love using copies of them on my pags.
Another page using bits and pieces that were left on my art table after other projects. The top of the magazine image of the lady was used on Maya's journal. I love looking back at pages done like this because they bring back to me all the other pages that the scraps came from.

This is my first spread in Maya'sjournal. She is working in the journal I made last month. One of her pages was an "about me" page. I thought that was a great idea, so I made one too. The bits and pieces that I added don't really have much to do with me except for the tiny photo of me when I was four. I thought later that it would have been a good idea to put things that related to my life in some way. I guess these are things that I picked out that appeal to me, so in that way they do relate to my life. I enjoyed painting on the pages of Maya's journal. The paper is more absorbant than the Mead composition books that I normally use. Quite a different experience.

I haven't finished all the writing on this one, but thought I'd better post it while I had the camera home. I don't seem to be able to remember to bring it very often lately. I am so worn out by the end of the school day that I just get out of there as quick as I can. I don't have a prep period this semester and it's wearing me out. I just keep telling myself that I'll have a double one next semester.
