Two for the price of one

Firstly I would like to apologize for taking so long to blog about the journals I have worked in, so many technical difficulties.

                But moving forward

Sharon's Journal

The background was made with blue, turquoise and aqua India ink around the sketch of the mermaid. I then finished the mermaid and the seahorses using inktense pencils, I added sparkly ink for her tail.Finally I collaged the fish and quote.

Roz's Journal
 I did a watercolour wash of the first silhoette.
I then worked out the placement of the second silhoette. I then darkened the first one with repeated washes. I used india ink for the second silhoette

I then did the background using indian ink, gesso and a Donna Downey stencil.

to finish it off I wrote a song lyric that inspired the whole page.
I enjoyed working in both journals, but not so much the blogging. Hopefully the next time I go to blog I wont have to deal with so many difficulties.
