This circle journal is not actually starting until February.However,I wanted to get my pages done,since I'll be in Egypt in January for a couple of weeks.
The theme is artistic evolution. My first page is entitled Fairy of the Night...so,the next artist to get my journal will evolve that theme for her 2 pages.For example,she might do a butterfly,a bird,a dragonfly....or a night theme like star or moon or sun...Say she chooses to do a sun...then the next artist in line could do the moon,the stars...or evolve to a beach theme....the possibilities are endless!

Recently in Paris,while excavating underneath La Conciergerie for a new parking lot,construction workers discovered oneof Marie Antoinette's diary covers and a single,poignant diary page. I have shown them here,in Elena's journal,along with a visual interpretation.

These are 2 pages I created for Tracy's Marie Antoinette circle journal pages...her journal is,well, VERY non-traditionally Marie...so when I saw this pic of Lady Gaga,I had to use it for her. I hope she likes it!
The large "bubbles" are cheapo dangly bracelets that Terry picked up for me recently to use in my artwork...

These pages were made for Ali's upcoming swap in January...I am working ahead of time to make sure I get everything done.We had to use floral napkins as a background,and incorporate Mucha art into it. I chose to use Graphic 45's Steampunk Debutante Mucha image...I love the colors!I also used IRock bling,which I love as well!La Tentatrice means The Temptress.
