Paintings to Journals

these paintings are part of the assignment given us from Julie's and Chris's texture town class..
these pieces show the top 2 and the bottom left have layers and 1 glaze i left the 4th to show the dramatic difference each layer will make..

I have some glare here but this shows all my glazes in place and the texture layer added...where we were to enhance our texture with writing...i did 4 pieces because i decided that they will become journal 2 of each as close as possible textures and glaze applications

this one resembles slate to me...
so now i make signatures and then stitch them together with 2 journals for gifting..:)
thank you for looking
and if you haven't been to the new website
please check that out...i will place these journals there when completed

These are great Mary. They all look like natural surfaces of some sort, or weathered walls. They will make good covers.

Glass totally amazes me when you work with it and find a wonderful rich color or texture. Lovely works that will inspire you in the near future. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Hi, Mary! Your covers came out great! I especially like the one in progress that is in the second photo, bottom right. I love that play of golds with the green and the brown. :-)
