So Lisa's color of choice was rust, and I was so excited to play because it was out of my comfort zone...waaaay out! I knew I wanted to do a rusty keyhole with a hole cut out so you could see to the next page and when I started searching for a cool quote to go on the inside, I found Nat King Cole's lyrics to "Paper Moon" and thought it was perfect!
Here is the rusty keyhole- after I'd drawn it, I decided it needed a guardian angel- so that's how "Claudia" came into the picture- she reminds me of Lestat's adopted daughter in The Vampire Lestat....
And here is the inside; once I decided on the words, I KNEW I had to use a sickle moon with a rusty sunset and I had to include a "Lisa inspired" lady reclining on the moon. There's also a little friend hidden in the picture...do you see her?
And here it is all cut up and glued back together:
That's all for now- I'm off to mail this to Gemma- and then start on the next jounal pages for Kat- because I.WILL.NOT.BE.LATE.AGAIN!
