Lady Liberty

Lady LibertyThis is my first journal page in response to Nancy Baumiller's Collage Play with Crowabout. I feel like I have so many journals started now -- and everyone a different style LOL I decided to do this page in my Heart Speak journal. I cut the binder down to an unsual shape (just seemed like the thing to do LOL) and my requirement for this journal is the pages must all be personal to me and they all must have a heart on them.

I had a tough time figuring out what to do, but it seemed to me that she resembled the Statue of Liberty a bit and I was able to draw a parallel with something currently happening.

I seldom use magazine images, so these should be interesting challenges!

I really like the idea of going by your own rules. I think this is a very positive and optimistic journal entry.

Hi Karen!
Love this piece, and I completely agree with what Joanne has said about it being a positive piece and your own rules!
Vale :)
PS I just sent you an email too!

Just stopping by to see what you're up to these days. :) Love your under sea pages-- your pages in my Ocean Fantasy AB are still my al time favorite! And you've reminded me that I NEED to get back to journaling. I have a few "started" too.

Great spread, Karen! I like the stitching and the heart adds your personal trademark!

Beautiful layout. Great composition, colors and the each design element comes together in a way that inspires me to pull out my journal.
