new journal pages

I finished 2 journal pages today for various online challenges.

The first one is for a monthly challenge at The challenge is "square".

I started with pages from a piano music that I use for leftover paint. I cut the pages into several different sized squares and then glued them to my page. Next, I painted the girl in the square and then finished with the detail work enhancing parts of the initial paper layer.

On the opposing page I had the same initial layer of squares but for this page I was focusing on this month's challenge at Art Journal Journey which is "Bird, Beasts and Humans". I chose birds and here is the page I came up with.

I did a bit of detail work at the bottom pulling images from the under layer similar to the opposing page with the girl in the square. Then I painted around the birds with black gesso and used a white pen to add a few doodles.

Thanks for stopping by!
