I've been scrambling to complete one or two more art journal pages, based on projects from my Pam Carriker workbook. Chapter three explores the element of shape, and this first project involved using a couple of different stencils to create repetitive shapes in varying sizes to evoke a feeling of unity on the page.

That sideways pyramid shape has nothing to do with this page. Alas, it floated up from the page behind it, which has a diagonal pocket glued to it. DOH!

This next one is a work in progress. We are to create a collage using random shapes cut from everyday bits and bobs, or ephemera, found around the house or in our stash.

A Great Opportunity to Employ Those Used Security Envelopes

To finish it off, once everything is glued in place, I am to add color with media other than our usual acrylic paints.

I hope to finish this one up today, for tomorrow morning, bright and early, I will be hauling all of my new encaustic tools and supplies over to Artsy Woman's garage studio, and the Muses will spend the entire day playing with them -- fortified by chocolate, of course. Barring any accidents involving hot wax or toxic fumes, you should hear from me again in a day or two.

Nice pages. I especially love the 1st page. Beautiful colors and design. The Pyramid shape as a nice surprise. Look forward to the completion of the second page. Have a fun, safe day. It's going to be a wonderful, sunny day. :)
