Red & Black Journal

This month's traveling journal featured the colors red and black. I chose a dance theme because I really wanted to use the doll part stamp I had carved to make tag dolls. It had sort of a clown/pierrot feel and by positioning the arms and legs, I can make these tag dolls look like they are dancing! The right hand page (above) features a tag doll and a vintage gal wearing a pierrot collar and head scarf. Her pensive mood shows she is thinking about dancing (hence the ballerina on her cap). I used various papers to "scrap up" the tag I used for the doll body.

The left hand page (below) is a tiny stage featuring some vintage can-can girls. I used glitter on their dresses and clear buttons on top of their faces for a slight magnifying effect (the picture doesn't show this very well; sorry!). I found two dance-related quotes to paste above and below the stage. I am pleased with how this red and black theme worked out! More art soon!
