Journal 52, Week 39. In the City

Week 39, Journal 52, with a prompt of "In the City".
There's a depressing song by the Eagle's called "In the City". Find the lyrics and see that I just added some hope to it.

Journal 52 Rhyme Time, and Three More Journal Pages

Journal 52, Week 38, Rhyme Time.
She used her mind
Was not unkind
And so she shined

I used my Gelli Plate for the background with red, yellow and turquoise acrylics, added some mor acrylics through stencils, and played with pens. Can you see the faint image of a girl right in the center? I colored her with pens and then "erased" using a baby wipe so she would be barely visible.

 Apples from this week's food ad, Silk's Acrylic Glaze and some stamping.

One Can Dream
 This image came from a class I am taking on Copics (sorry, taking so many that I can't remember where it came from) and accidentally printed it on copy paper instead of the heavier paper that I use for Copics. WASTE NOT: Used colored pencils and fussy cut her, played with my Gellatos and stamps,  and then added more embellishments for a journal page.
Challenge Entered: Artistic Inspirations

 I had this bird traced from somewhere in one of my journals, I used watercolors for him and added some acrylic blots and lines.

Journal 52, Week 37, Newspaper. You Falled Me Down and Class

For this week (37) Journal 52, the prompt was "Newspaper". I had this old paper in my stash from January 2013 and ripped it up. Then I hunted for important "News". My favorite is my horoscope which says "Reading your own thoughts may help you to understand yourself better. Try to express yourself in writing rather than speaking. Something important may click." Ya think?????
A little gesso, a little acrylic, a few stamps, and a red/black/white pen.

This page has special meaning to me. The words were spoken by my then three year old when his dad pushed the skateboard that our son was sitting on down the driveway eliciting the angry words from and unhurt, but emotionally injured, child.
Acrylics, stamps, silk leaves, colored pencil. Orange/black/green pens.
And, finally, gesso, Montana pens, collaged papers, stamps, bingo dauber. Class, I'd rather take it than have it!

Jormall 52 - Week 36 Texture

R U Ready to Face the World?
I just love being pushed to do things I hadn't thought of doing. I was watching a video with a collage background and so when I read this week's Journal 52 prompt of "Texture", I knew that's where I would start. I grabbed a piece of pre-painted, in acrylic pinks, tagboard and started layeringtorn piecesfrom magazine pictures and other repped papers. then I added some molding paste texture of cut out leaves. Next came out the gellatos that were used on the face, hair and clothes. Also added gellatos randomly over the rest of the page. Outlined the magazine "R" and added the rest of the words. Outlines and added details with Pitt pens (including white), added some Washi tape to the front of her top, added a button and a found feather.
