"Secret" Spread

"Beautiful girl, what is your deepest desire?" / "I cannot tell; it is a secret."

These are not the first pages in my new art journal, but they are the first finished pages. I'm so happy with this spread!

My new journal is quite a bit like my old one. It is about 9 inches by 12 and is bound in the same style as my other; this one, though, has black pages. It is quite different to build your work on something that has such a dark starting point, but I'll have to do a few more spreads before I can say whether I prefer white, black, or colored pages.

Lots of love!

PS. The beautiful lady's head is a free collage image from here.

Ooh very pretty. All the splashes and dribbles remind me of Dina Wakely. I just finished my Olive journal last night, so I get to start in my new wallpaper one soon!

It looks great.

I got my moleskine in the post a couple of days ago for the sketchbook project that I'm doing. Having never really art journaled before I'm having a little trouble getting started, especially as the pages of the moleskine are so thin and need reinforcing somehow.

Off to ponder some more, have a great weekend.

I absolutely LOVE the interjection of that little bit of sheet music with one word. So effective in the best possible way.
