Janie's "Nature" makes its debut.

The initiation of my journal for the Round 7 travelling journal. I changed my mind from Australiana to Nature to make it, even more, broader for your imaginations to flow. This year I have chosen a smaller journal to work in. It is 8" high by 5 inches wide when shut. You will all be working on a double spread of 8"x10" in landscape. If anyone wants to add an extra flap, there is plenty of spare pages. Thank you for looking: Janie O'Brien

This is the outer cover which is a linocut of pandanus palm from where I live in far north Queensland.
 These are common along our shores.
 I photocopied it onto deli paper. It turned out well.

The actual journal itself inside the named cover with some collaged elements

My first collage comprises fussy cut fungi against a background of torn papers and tissue.

My second collage depicting various heliconia flowers seen in most far north Queensland gardens, together with a lovely purple & pink hibiscus.


  1. Are you using a Dylusions Art Journal?

  2. Some of my favourite plants Janie we have all of them here too. Different mushrooms though.

  3. Great start to your journal Janie!

  4. Love this Janie - can’t wait to work in it!


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