This is a spread from the journal I made from watercolor paper. The top picture is the full spread open. The bottom picture is a detail photograph of the lower right hand corner of the spread.
The paper on the borders and throughout the spread were created by first using some cheap copy paper and sprayed it with some ink. I then used a heat gun to dry the paper. I rubber stamped images into columns filling up the paper. The paper was then ripped into different size strips and glued along the borders and filling in other spaces.
The photograph I took in the bottom detail is an old house near Santa Fe, New Mexico. I made a copy of the photograph in black and white. The image was then hand colored with markers and torn to fit the page.

These are pages from a book I made using a single sheet of watercolor paper. I found the instructions on Tracy V Moore Channel on You Tube. I love the idea of using a single sheet of paper and not wasting anything. I have made different sizes of this journal which working nicely for making something small you can tuck inside a backpack or purse to do impromptu art.

These artist trading cards are for a "Create A Theme " swap. The theme was landscapes, so I did a city landscape for my partners. I made one long piece that would be divided into four cards. I carefully marked where the cut would be so it would not cut off a good part of the cityscape. Each card has some person or people in it. If you look carefully you will see the cuts.
