The Round Robin continues

It'been a while since I made my previous blogpost and to be honest, I feel slightly out of touch with it. I have missed writing here and I haven't done much art either. Between my day-job and making the Traveler's Notebooks, I don't have a lot of time left. I even had to make a waiting list for the Traveler's Notebooks, I just can't make them as fast as they are being requested.

It's a good thing people are so kind and patient and it's great meeting people from all over the world.

Mostly I tend to sneek a peek at facebook and post some pictures there when I made a Traveler's Notebook or insert that I like, but sitting down and writing a blogpost, just wasn't something I could wrap my head around.

With making the waiting list I feel I have finally got everything back under control and I even started doing some art again. 

So today I finally shipped the next art journal from the Round Robin on it's way to Tracy. It's Lee's journal, a beautiful bound book with a canvas cover and gorgeous painted papers inside. A joy to work in.

It arrived a while back.

Filled with some of lee's beautiful painted papers.

 I had a hard time picking one to work on, because they were all so inviting.

I did manage to find one =)

I added some acrylic paint and some stamps.

Free handed a girl with acrylic paint.

Found a quote to go with the theme: "What do you see when you look in the mirror."

The quote is by George Bernard Shaw:
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.

I'm not overly exited about my handwriting, but I do like the way the spread turned out.

I wanted the next spread to be completely different, so I picked a white page and started with Gesso on the white, unpainted, background.

After which I glued some circles onto the pages.

Got a little carried away and completely forgot to make progress pics...

So all I have for you are pictures of the completed spread.

I honestly couldn't tell you what I did on this page.

But I can tell you the quote I used =)

Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it.
-Ernest Holmes

I felt it was really fitting for this page, with it's almost dream like appearance... a little surreal.

I rather like surreal, so I'm quite happy with it.

I hope you enjoyed watching these pages and I hope to be back soon with Susan's journal... and a new project I've embarked upon, called the Traveling Dori, but I'll tell you all about that when next we meet, since it's voyage hasn't started yet.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend.
