The hen face is a rubber stamp I carved yesterday at the senior center while chatting with friends. It helps to carve there because it forces me to look up from such close up work, and it gives my eyes a little break.
I used one of my hand cut stencils for the face, over a beautiful cotton batik fabric.
This page was done witha paint soaked string flopped down and pressed with opposite page when journal closed. Then the string was removed to reveal an abstract line in which to doodle. Kind of a fun little technique. You can see the darker pink/fuschia string lines which is the paint.
I have not covered this one yet. The top one has a cover I took from wall of studio. I had painted a face on a piece of tapestry fabric found at a thift store while on an outing with art pals. She is actually a 3/4 figure, so the bottom part is folded back under and glued at outer edges to create a nice pocket for my drawing pencils and smudger. Also a stray post card or two seem to find their way into this pocket. LOL
