What's UP in the Studio- Inspiration Avenue's Weekly challenge and a few Altered Journals

Happy Wednesday all! I've been busy this week working on my new series of altered journals plus my new painting for this week's challenge at Inspiration Avenue. The theme this week is "Pink". Here's what I've gotten done so far..... Mind, there is more red than pink at this time and even when I'm done, the pinks will be more along the lines of salmon instead of baby doll pink; hopefully this will be an acceptable entry for the challenge:)

 As for my journals, I included a variety of fronts, backs, sides and close ups for you guys to see without having to spend too much time looking.  I'll be adding them all into my Etsy shop over the next couple of days.




And now after struggling with Blogger's lovely new photo editor for an HOUR, I really must get on to painting.  If you get a chance, why not put something together for Inspiration Avenue's challenge- it's a lot fun and you'll automatically be entered in our monthly giveaway!
cheers,
Stephanie

Steph, this painting will be stunning, I can't wait to see it finished! And I love your journals! I keep meaning to start one, but...well you know, not enough hours in the day...what an excuse. not.

Don't even mention blogger's photo editor to me, UGH. I can't use it at all, have to go back to the "old editor", then switch back again...

Have a great Wednesday!
