Magazine photo mini-challenge

I picked the magazine photo on these pages because I loved the colors and the paisleys. Then I challenged myself to make a background to go with it. I spread the paint on with an old credit card and drug out all three of my paisley rubber stamps. Two of them are eraser stamps that I carved. The colors match much better in real life than they do in the photo.

My vacation has me noticing recipes again. It was so nice to eat food that was cooked by other people who just happen to be good cooks. I tend to get into a rut with cooking and cook the same things over and over.

I love your work, it was very fun to look and and very inspiring. Love the white book, that make me want to make a pink book (my favorite color)

Thanks Anita. I've also started a black and white and red all over book, but I haven't posted any of it yet. I think a pink one would be lots of fun too.

I've worked in several round robin color journals and loved them all.
