Journal Pages...Tropical

Ever get the feeling . . .
somebody’s watching you?

I don't know why I decided to make this a journal spread.
I think I may have had more luck with a different surface.

I started with blobs of ink: purple and blue.
Then added acrylics, watercolor crayons,
colored pencil, and more ink until I had
a right good mess. Tried to clean it up
with more white colored pencil and now
have officially given up. I may try this again
on canvas or something...

The theme at Inspiration Avenue this week is Tropical,
and I have proved my theory once again that 
I have the most trouble on the weeks I host the challenge.
I am so late with my entry that I am typing
this post before the paint is dry.
Will have to scan it quickly as soon as it dries... Sheesh.

See all the awesome Tropical entries Sunday afternoon
on Inspiration Avenue!
Have a happy Sunday :)


  1. A delightful addition to the 'tropical' theme. Such a happy group of beautifully painted fish.

  2. I love tropical fish. This is a cute journal spread. It is always fun to try new and different surfaces. Now you can add words if you want.

  3. Maggie, I think this is beautiful. How on earth do you get so much personality in a fish's face?
    I am sorry, but I had to go back and read earlier posts that I missed (how does e-1 keep caught up?) The girl with the deer was especially moving to me. You are so talented, girlfriend!

  4. Maggie, you amaze me! This is beautiful! Maybe you just work really well under pressure! At any rate, it gorgeous as always!


  5. I think it turned out beautifully! Love the colour and adore the fishies!

  6. Awesome week wow and you are awesome.

  7. I can feel the sun on my back and snorkel in my mouth - love the energy of the piece

  8. I love this- you've caught so much movement and LIFE here- it's awesome!

  9. Those colors--just love them so much.

  10. Wow, amazing work! Love those strong colors, and the fishes are adorable~ ^-^
