Sister Grace: My Journal Spread Completes its Evolution

Tah-dah - My "Sister Grace" journal pages are completed!

I began this page spread in January and posted about it last month. The process of building up layers on these pages is fascinating, and since I just happened to have documented it, let's start at the beginning:

The first step was to do freewriting over masking tape:

Next, the first layer of imagery went on. This is what it looked like after the first work session:

Not bad, buuuuttttt.... I needed to integrate the two pages, and my go-to method for that color. And I wanted to cover up images I didn't like, and enhance the ones I did. After some homework, it looked like this:

Better, but it still need more blue on the left page. I alos found some more images that cried out to go into the mix. Once I knew what I wanted, it came together quickly - and here we are, back at the finished page:

I've come to like this spread a lot, though I really don't know what it means! There's a lot going on, indeed, which always intrigues me. The concept of "grace" ties in with the ballet dancer images, and since I fumbled my way through ballet class as a child, I have a resonance there. No matter; I have this image posted on my screen saver, so it gives me a bit of mystery to contemplate as I log on and off. Someday I might figure it out and write another post! For now, I just enjoy, and hope you do, too :)
