Feeling neutral about the whole thing

A few years ago, Carolyn and I met through an art journal swap on the Blissfully_Art_Journaling Yahoo group.  When, after a year's time, the swap ended, Carolyn and I decided we were having so much fun that we should keep going. We have shared the ups and downs of life, and have held each other accountable for journaling through those times when we'd just rather not.  Our partnership has pushed me to try things that I might not have otherwise, and this month is no exception.  I tend to work in bright, vivid colors, favoring fuchsia, yellow and turquoise.  On this spread I challenged myself to try something different, using only neutral, earth-tone colors.  I like it!  What do you think?

Welcome to my little corner of the web!  I have been involved in creating mixed media art for about 15 years now, and I thought it was about time to start sharing what I do with you!  What took me so long?  Well, I have to admit, "putting myself out there" is just a teensy bit scary.  There's that whole "Is my art good enough?" thing.  But then again, don't we ALL feel that way about something?  Please join me in my journey-- I look forward to meeting you!
