Creative Jumpstart project

Today I painted a bird in my new Junque Journal, after watching Mystele Kirkeeng's video in Nathalie Kalbach's Creative Jumpstart Workshop series.
Unidentifiable bird atop a branch of a mysterious variety of fruit.  
I made the Junque Journal in Julie Balzer's Make Your Own Junque Journal class.  I've made a bunch of junque journals, and a couple of books with watercolor paper, which I love working in. It's full of random gelli prints, nothing finished, and nothing that I'm unwilling to paint over. I'm hoping to add a lot to it during Creative Jumpstart.

Thanks for looking!


  1. LOve the layering, and the sweet angle of the birds head, twisted to look at you!

  2. Oh so cool!!! I love birds. After female faces and figures, it's birds for me! Your book is super cool, too.

  3. I love the way your bird is so innocently looking at us. Very cute!

  4. Love it - the junque journal looks fab.
