A few more pages from my Kelly Kilmer class

This spread did not follow any of Kelly's prompts, but was inspired by the image of the dancer - I have always had a passion for Flamenco dancing. I tried a few classes many years ago, it is surprisingly difficult to co-ordinate the movements of the arms and feet, as they are frequently moving counter to each other...

This spread was in response to a prompt that Kelly posted - Perfume or no perfume?

These pages were inspired by the images rather than a prompt

First pages for my Kelly Kilmer class

I have signed up for Kelly Kilmer's "A life Made By Hand Class". I have been lurking rather a long while since signing up, looking at the many wonderful pages that are being posted. Collage is a new medium for me, so I have been rather hesitant in starting, but the group is wonderfully supportive, so yesterday I took the plunge and posted my first pages.

The second page (on the right) is not really a collage, but as I wanted the text to be the main feature of this page, I felt the image spoke for itself and needed no further intervention from me.

I did well with my January calendar for Kate Crane's Monthly Art Calendar Challenge , only a few blank squares.

Here are my pages prepped and ready for February. The squares were masked off then I buffed on Permanent Red PanPastel with Phthalo blue around the edges. I just love PanPastels for journal pages they give the page such a lovely smooth tactile surface. I then stamped around the edges with a flourish and a heart stamp.
