voice of the wind, mixed media panel, 6×8 inches

I have been working on mixed media panels to be bound into journal covers. I am finding that I have missed this quite a bit. It’s very strange how differently I work if I’m presented with a canvas panel versus a stretched canvas versus a cradled wood panel. I don’t know the why or how of it. And I don’t know if I should just stick to one.

    Don't stick to just one. You are doing so incredibly well in all three!

    Bridgette: The image of this tree is so, so amazing. And the panel itself is definitely one of my favorites. Love that the word "trees" is revealing itself at the top too.

    What do the back panels of your books look like? Do you make them match, or continue the theme, or plain? I've always wondered. :)

    Thanks deryn, karen and dona for your comments.

    Dona-the back panels of my journals are just painted with colors that go with the front cover. When I first started, I had collages on both the front and back...but now just the front!
