Sadly, the last traveling journal is on its way home to its owner. Sadly for me, because I so enjoyed working in each of these journals, and the last one is finished. Thanks to all of you for allowing me to put my two cents on to your pages.
Hopefully we will be doing another. I look forward to it, and to getting my own back. I'll be proudly showing it off on my Sans Souci blog when I get it.
...........if I don't melt first from this incredible heat. When did the sun get so close?
Thanks everyone. xoxo

This was certainly a beautiful journal to work in. The other artists continue to blow my mind with their beautiful art contributions and incredible talent. This art journal is based on Vincent Van Gogh and the song by Don McLean, "Starry, Starry Night". So much eye candy to take in!
This journal has traveled onto the next artist and then it will be given back to the original artist/owner (Gemma Manzo). It is currently on the art table of Tere Bingham, so I do not have any photos of her work, since she works on the journals after I do. I am eager to see what she has done. Her creations are spectacular additions.
Here are a few sneak peeks into the Vincent art journal. All done by various artists (there are six of us in this particular group). I hope you enjoy and are inspired!
Lisa DiNuzio added an ear milagro! What a wonderful surprise that was!
I am currently working on Tere's MAGIC book. Then it will return to hers. Mine will be coming back to me at the end of this month. I cannot wait to see what the ladies have done!
Here are a few photos of the MAGIC art journal:
Crystals on the cover!We have all had so much pleasure working on these and sharing our art with each other that we are planning another round based on "song titles". That will begin in August and I cannot wait to get started and share them with you!

They crack me up. Heaven only knows what I was thinking when I made the "turnip"! It looks like more of a combination of a beet and who knows what. I did the best that I could, being only 9. I was especially interested to see how my art style has not changed much after all of the years have passed.
In case you cannot recognize what they are supposed to be... in order, they are; a cauliflower, a turnip, a carrot, an orange, the whole group of them all together and a watermelon slice.
I still use this method when making things like birds, people, flowers, etc. Only now I use acrylic paint to decorate them with and seal them with a clear coat to protect them. The ones above are not sealed with anything and they have held up for nearly a half of a century. Pretty amazing.
