Love Vivid

Getting out of my comfort zone---> dark, rough, random, unbalanced, grunge, graffiti, words.

Fabulous! Really interesting to see the work in progress page - that's probably where I would have stopped - and how you've "lifted" it to the next level.

Wow! I need to keep this in mind when I try new things. Be brave and just go for it! I also loved seeing the picture of the "work in progress"; it's so fun to see how an idea grows and morphs into a bigger, better finished page!

I´m interested to learn if you will journal over this eventually. I´ve picked up so much from reading your posts - being out of my comfort zone is where I am all the time with my beginning baby steps!

Sam, I was actually going to leave the page as it was in the work in process photo, but the next morning I kept looking at it and it seemed like it just wasn't finished! My daughter (11) added the silver paint dots and the edges!

Bonnie Rose, Thank you!!!

Nadine, I just keep going until a page looks "finished," when I don't see an area of the page that "needs" something like color or texture or words or images. This page does seem really unbalanced to me, but I am keeping it like that to stay out of my comfort zone.

Jan, I won't journal on this page... as I was creating it I was just focused on the LOVE and the look so it is what it will be.

I love this! The bright colors are so fun and wild. Your blog is always so inspiring!

I very much admire how bold you are with colors and how you saturate the paper with them , seemingly so freely. It's something I'm very tentative with (going bold and bigger), so looking at your work gives me more motivation to work at it.
