Be a little mad (inspiration ave what inspires you?)


I really enjoyed making this mad page for the milliande group prompt debris. I have been printing out copies of my old journal pages and going over them (face to the left). I wanted to feature some orange in my work influenced by Sarah's thanks page...she has some great pages on her blog. My pages have all kinds of things on them from ripped magazine pages, ikea flowers pictures, stamped squares and a pink painted transparency covering the face on the right. I like being a bit mad sometimes..do you? The challenge over at inspiration ave is "what inspires you"...well milliande inspires me at the moment to do a journal page every day

Ta for the plug! :)

I like the way you reuse your previous paintings / pages and re-invent them, that’s a really clever idea. Love that pink transparency too. I’ve never quite got the hang of collage, but I very much admire those like you who can get it to work!

Beautiful pages Lorraine!
I'm inspired by the bits I pick up off of the ground and of course the other blogs I visit. Sometimes I get inspired by random objects in the thrift stores and think about how I could alter them. My collections of rusty things, papers and antique bits inspire me especially if I have a pile of them then I don't feel so bad about using some up!
I love combining my lampwork beads to matchup with stone beads I've bought to create jewelry designs too.

Hi Lorraine! I like this a lot! Makes me think of Alice in Wonderland. You used to have a background theme of that. I can't do collage..but I sure enjoy seeing yours. Very pretty and fun.

I'm enjoying your pages. I'm so far behind in Milliande's group, but I'll catch up one day...soon or my ~Muse~ will be unsettling to deal with.

Wow! These pages really make an impact. I love all the colors, images, and techniques you've used. I don't think I've seen your blog before--I'll definitely be back!
