Occasional ruminations concerning painted pages, hand bound books, the use of photos in journaling and the contemplation of various other pursuits.

Journal Pages.....Fall in Estes Park Altered Just a Bit

This photo was taken in Estes Park, CO and then altered with sand paper and India Ink.  It was then placed on a page in one of my painted page journals. Caran d'ache watercolor pastels were used around the perimeter of the photo to help meld it into the page.   Journaling will be added, perhaps with a color very close to the color of the page to partially obscure it.

I like going back to pages in this type of journal to add things; this process is almost like having an adult coloring book to return to in quiet times.

The photos are never in chronological order so when you read your journal memories of many different events are recalled.
