“If I could be Queen for a day…’ What would you do? I realized that I might already be a Queen. My palace may not be palatial, and my loyal subjects are few, but in a small way I am the Queen here.
I started this page a few days ago by simply stamping the crownish image. I bought some new stamps and many times I will randomly stamp the images into my journal and later work them into a page.
This one seemed to make a great crown. I added some details and shading and as per Misty Mawn’s prompt to do self portraits, added a face. She is not me necessarily in looks, though people say all the time that my ladies kind of look like me. I think that is because I am expressing myself through them. I guess after looking in a mirror for 44 years, the face I’m most familiar with is mine. I have a longish nose and neck and largish eyes and so do my ladies.
I’m really liking working in this smallish journal, with simple tools and simple drawings. No painty, no cutty, no gluey. A nice change.
