Beginnings of Winter Journal Page

I took out my journal and was thinking of how I just made my Autumn girl * (you can see her in the previous post if you missed her) and how maybe I should do a girl for each of the seasons. And so the story begins.


I knew I wanted winter to be a girl who was pale like snow, with jet black hair and ruby red lips.



I had this wonderful scrapbook paper that had deer, birds, trees and snow. I added it to give the page interest and dimension. I wrapped it around my girl like winter wraps snow around nature in winter.


I wanted the sky to be blue with snow and maybe have the appearance of rain falling. This was the beginning concepts for my winter pages.


I love how sometimes things just flow better when you sit down on a different days and on different weeks. I can't wait to share with you the finished pages. Here she is with a few layers and sorry the image was taken at night so its not the clearest, but when I post the pages done I will take the photographs in day light.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead! We've been having our typical late CA. summer, which as me indoors under a fan and trying to paint more! If you like to visit other artists and see what they created this week this post is linked up with Paint Party Friday and the link is in resources. See you soon!
Did you get any creative projects done this past week? What is your favorite season?

  7. This is beautiful, love those gorgeous lips of hers! Looking forward so seeing it finished!

    And thanks for visiting my blog!
    On my wood paintings I'm using my beloved dry pastels, so I don't have to seal the wood first, instead I just spray them with fixative when finished. ^-^
