Pages 15 and 16

(beth) ... in Egypt, waiting for that nice lady to bring them birds for dinner.
(kirsten) She's hanging out with my cat, Cleo!
(beth) So... where is my cat?


Pages 13 and 14

(beth) I expande the geometric patterns with some nifty new metallic colored pencils.
(kirsten) I traced around the circles with my gel pens (I'm addicted). I think they look kind of like amoebas.
(beth) Lots of little dots - stamped images with a cork.


Pages 11 and 12

(kirsten) I've been playing with altering photos in the last few days, and I happened to have a photograph of the Eiffel Tower in Las Vegas, so I thought it would fit in well here. I used a bleach pen to create the outline around the tower, and painted the pages with acrylic paints.
(beth) I've spent some time recently looking at the Eiffel Tower images so I put a couple into the journal. Kirsten doesn't have to take them in that direction, but that's where they came from.

Pages 9 and 10

(Beth) Filled in a few more little people and some paper and decided we're probably done with this one. It was a lot of fun, though.

(kirsten) I added some characters to hang out with Beth's people.
(beth) This was a great picture starter! I added some little people doing assorted things and coordinated the background. Maybe Kirsten will add some more.
(Kirsten) O.k., so obviously I didn't spend much time thinking out this page, but I do hope that it will be a good picture starter for Beth, and I think it has a good sense of movement.

Pages 7 and 8

(kirsten) I thought that this page needed some girly swirlies. I doodled it while I was having a coffee at my favorite coffee shop.
(beth) I started this page out by drawing on extra petals and partway through I was very displeased. So I painted it over in purple. While doing so the idea came into my mind of that custom of removing the petals... I'd never painted a human body part before and am thrilled that I was able to mix a decent color and paint recognizable fingers. This page might be done or might not.
(Kirsten) Torn paper flower made with some of my Basic Grey paper. They have great designs and color combos.
