Round Robin Journal Number 2

Ok its time for Round Robin Journal Number 2.
This artist Pam Austin, "Pamicat" used doors as her theme.
I wish I could show you the journal itself for it is absolutely Amazing!
I will leave that honor to the owner herself.
I just hope mine is a worthy addition.
As you can see I picked a cabin door to add to the journal. Not wanting it to seem so plain, I added a stained glass window pane to the door.
Here is a close up of the window. I actually stamped on to clear plastic and colored in the panes with Prismacolor Markers.
 Yes the door really opens to reveal the countryside complete with dirt road.

 And what cabin would be complete without a cat on the back porch.
I hope they like it.

Sox's Round Robing Journal Page

Over at Kindred Souls Im playing along in a round robin jounal swap. One member, Sox has created a story for hers and the travelers name is Magdalena.
Her journal is themed with travels from around the world. I took her to Asia and below is the page I created for her. I hope she likes it.
This is the completed front of the page. As you can see I created a pocket to fit a tag.
As the story goes Magdalena is traveling by air so in Asia she is touring via hot air balloon.
This is the same page with the tag removed so you can see the complete kimono and the geshia image in the background. I used the gelli printing technique to create the background papers.

 Close up of the geshia. She is reversed stamped via Gelli Printing over asian text.

This Panda is stamped with a stamp from Impression Obsession that I stamped and inked and cut out.

Close up of the tag. I stamped the image on clear packaging and used more printed text for the balloons canvas. The background is a reverse stencil from Crafters Companion in watercolored distress ink.

This is the back of my page. The asian coins I created from grunge board.
The fortune reads Live Your Own Life.

I wonder where Magdalena will fly to next?
