Journal page swap

So I've been working on some journal pages. approx 8.5 x 10.5 On some of them I've acutally done some personal journal work (I'm sure this is going to impress so many~ not~) and others just the normal bit of arty thought. Oh! how I wish I could letter better.
Typography is just not my thing

I've really enjoyed working on these, the bigger size has been lots of fun. I've used a thick board for my base. I painted them with acrylic before adding all the collage elements. They are two sided so while one side was drying I was off and running on a new page. Every element was outlined with a soft carbon pencil then smeared over with a highlighter. The highlighter kind of
smooshed the carbon and smeared it nicely. ~ I'm using very technical terms here so I hope you can keep up~ I used my Nexus ocher pen to scribble around all collage elements. It's very faint but just adds that little bit of depth. The bummer here is that I have used it all up and can't find a replacement. Pssttt.... on that.

These two pages have my drawings that I enlarged big because they were on the small side, nowhere near filling this kind of space. I then colorized myart with pastels I found in the back room. That's the joy of back rooms you never know what you will find.
