Lisa's Art Journal Color Rust

I am participating in a Round Robin Art Journal Swap. Our theme for this go round is colors. Each participant chose a color or color combination for their art journal. So each artist has to work within that color or color combination in that journal. Lisa Wrights art journal was the first one to arrive in my mailbox. It flew over from England. Must have been a fun journey.
I have to say that Rust was a real challenge for me. I didn't like my first pages so I ended up redoing them. Good thing Lisa left her pages loose allowing us to take them out and lie them flat.

Poor Kim Imgirl has had to wait for me to send this lovely journal on to her. We are supposed to mail them out by the first of the month. I promised her I would have the next one to her on time. Good thing too because Kat's art journal just arrived yesterday. Her color combination is Magenta Teal and Silver. Should be fun and challenging. Come back to see Kat's art journal pages. She has booklets so that will be even more art to create.
If you'd like to take a peek at the progress of all of the journals this far you can go to our group Pinterest page and have a look around.

Happy Creating!


  1. Tammy,
    Your pages are wonderful and your tag! It doesn't look like Rust was a challenge at all for you. I just hope I can come up with something as stunning as yours! Bravo! I love your girl face and the texture you did over her eyes! Your tag with the button and wing is so clever... It all looks rusty beautiful to me! I will let you know when the journal arrives!
    Have fun in Kat's journal!

  2. I am LOVING your rusty art and all the different elements to them, just gorgeous and SO VERY Lisa!
    I love the woman and the way you added texture and words to each page- it is wonderful!

  3. VERY pretty pages Tammy...I love the patchwork quilt with all of the different patterns and the little portrait of Lisa. Such happy quotes and all the little extra pieces make the pages exciting! ♥♥

  4. I loved seeing these pages and also the pages you posted in pinterest. Very cool!

  5. Your pages are fabulous Tammy - the depth of that orange is yummy and I love your paper patchwork! I'd peeked at this on Pinterest but hadn't realised that your girl was a portrait of Lisa - what a lovely idea! x

  6. Your pages are awesome! I don't work much with this color, but you've definitely inspired me :-) Thanks for sharing your amazing work!
