Day 1310: A "Round Robin" with Aunt Martha!

"chronic shopper", round robin journal spread paper only collage

Nearing the end of the month, it is time
to finish a round robin journal spread to send on.
Maybe TMI? A step by step of the process.

step 1

Starting with an acrylic background on the 8.4" x 11" spread.

step 2

I planned a face & originally to use security envelopes for hair.

step 3

But I picked up a blue paper scrap and just went with it.

step 4

Still no real idea in mind, just playing with paper.

step 5

Now she's starting to tell me what she needs?

step 6

Arms might be good.

step 7

Using a sewing pattern for the eyebrows. 
I could get another effect by lining with a marker, 
but have decided to use just paper.

step 8

My Aunt Martha was a wonderful teacher & artist, 
and on days like this, I feel her with me. 
I don't care if that sounds crazy ...

step 9

because this is nothing like what I thought I would do today.

step 10

But I like it. Thank you Aunt Martha!
