Journal on Monday: week 59

Hi all!
This week it all started with the photo of a dancer by Ruven Afanador.

Cette semaine, tout a commencé avec la photo d'un danseur de Ruven Afanador. 

This one was a struggle: that's what you get when you have an image in your head you can't let go off. But i kept coming back until the image on the paper was good enough to make me happy and make me forget what it was i wanted to do in the first place. 

Ce fut un combat: c'est ce qui se passe quand on a une image en tête qu'on arrive pas à lâcher. Mais je suis revenue encore et encore jusqu'à ce que l'image sur papier me plaise et me fasse oublier ce que je voulais faire au départ.

The video.     La vidéo.

  4. Hi, France, and happy Monday! Just finished watching this week's video, and you did not disappoint! Absolutely love this journal spread and how you went about creating it. The technique of stamping with Gesso for your background is new to me, and I can't wait to try it! I love the texture that it immediately creates, but adding color is just the frosting on the cake for me! Great image to use for this spread, too! Bravo, my friend!
