September 08 Journal Page

Well I finally finished it ... only took me four months!!!! LOL


It's quite a big page and I think I may have to rethink the size of these pages - it's 15cm x 15 cm - but anyway it's finished. Where we live we have the best of everything that mother nature can throw at us ... beautiful golden beaches, rolling blue oceans and rainforests. So this is what my first page represents - golden beaches, rolling waves and the rainforest.

I haven't finished off the edges as yet ... but I actually won't do that until the end of all this.





October's page is much simpler and half way through it already ... so stay tuned, it will be up soon ... LOL hopefully.

Wow, Maryanne! This is exactly what you say it is... I feel the rolling motion of the waves, smell the beach and sense the quiet of the rain forest. Lush, beautiful and challenging (because of the size). Congratulations on finishing this one and I'm looking forward very much to the next! Robin A.

You've managed to capture the golden beaches, rolling waves and the rainforest very well. I want to be there. We have ice on the ground about a half inch think and rain on top of that and snow under that.

A little late or not, who cares. You have really managed to translate the beautiful landscape into a great, stunning BJP piece. Congratulations!

Oh, this is truly beautiful! Yes, you definitely nailed your description perfectly... can't wait to see what's next! A large-size page does create quite its own challenge, doesn't it?
