Roz's Oriental Journal.

I have completed a page in Roz's beautiful Oriental Journal.  I only did one page because I thought if I did two the pages might run out before the journal completed it's circle.
I was really scary for me as I have never before worked in a journal belonging to another person.
I was inspired by an article in Somerset Studio's Art Journaling magazine about Artist Bebe Butler.  Her work looked oriental and I tried my hand at following her methods.

And the beautiful journal itself:


  1. That looks gorgeous Pam and I'm sure it will be even better in person.Thank you. You did a great job on the face and you have achieved a nice minimalistic composition. I love it all!!

  2. Well done Pam! I love the soothing colours and beautiful face! Looking forward to seeing it in person! :-) xoxo

  3. I love all the layers coming through. And the COLOUR! Brave and amazing! I have so much trouble with green!

  4. Thank you all for your lovely comments. It is so encouraging as I battle all the time with the insecurities of being inexperienced.
    Minimalistic is probably a very good description of what I do Roz and this is one of the reasons I have difficulty saying I am an artist. When I watch a video and see the constant retouching happening I just don't get it. I just hope I get through this whole experience without messing up anybody's journal.
    As for green being difficult to work with Sharon another sign of my inexperience I guess. I'm just so happy you all liked it. Thanks.

  5. I love it! The colour is very oriental and admire that your approach is less is more. I am trying to curb the more more more. You definitely are an artist, in every sense of the word.


Thank you so much for popping in to see our lovely journals as they are developing. We love to see your comments.
