Flowers- Mini Journal
It's late...I probably shouldn't be blogging...tired. I went to a lecture at our local library on Picasso and Braque. It's been about 45 years since I've taken anything involving Art History and yet, I learned things about Picasso that I didn't know. Man...the guy was prolific! I don't know what drives a person to create as many paintings as he did. Now all of this has nothing to do with my floral picture. Today I decided to glue a napkin that I liked into my floral journal. I'll see it more in the journal than stuck in a drawer where I found the napkin. The right page is obviously the napkin and the left page is the second layer of the napkin that I peeled away. You might call it the "ghost". There was still a pretty decent imprint of the pattern, so I glued it to the left side. I saved a little square of the darker napkin and put it in the center. Then I took a Sharpie and drew lines around the floral and bird imprints that I could see. There are so many beautiful napkins. Caspari makes some of the nicest. I'd like to do a journal just on some of their napkins, however, they're expensive and I never see them on sale. So...to buy a package of napkins for one page each could get a little bit pricey. The journal would be pretty though!
