YES! File folders are my #1 canvas...great surface to really grunge up. And cheap! These are pieces are spectacular!

I'm making a plug here for art journaling - they don't have to be about headless barbies....i consider them to be evidence collectors...like have your journal open while you are working on something else and clean your brushes off on the journal page, and clip a piece of your collage material on it, and staple in the sketch or doodle you made while planning a piece. if you stamp on a painting, stamp a second time on your journal page...the stuff you write on your blog "pull the meat off the bone", THAT can go in your journal. when your art pieces are sold or given away, you will have your journal to remember the day and circumstances under which you made your art. DO IT!

I am so with you. . .I envy those who can keep a journal. I am not one of them. . .maybe someday? But I love these pieces. The equations in the midst and the colors are so wonderful!

What a fascinating inner look at your creative process! I love that feeling of being totally immersed in my art so that nothing else really exists for that moment. I have spent so much time lately with (clean) fabrics that I've missed getting dirty with my paints! Reading this has made me want to carve out some time tonight to do it. Thanks for the inspiration ;-)

I just LOVE all of the layering, painting, and scraping that you did on these pieces, especially the top one, Priestess. It reminds me so much of Lynne Perella's style, and you have such a wonderful knack for pulling this off. I have tried to accomplish this same look, but I can't get it to even come CLOSE to what you have done! It's lovely, and I love all of the journaling that you have also added to it. Your artwork is amazing, and I love coming to visit your blog to receive that inspiration!!
