CREATING WITH JENNIFER JUDD MCGEE

The journal I have been working in for May is from Kat and the artist she chose for her journal is Jennifer Judd McGee. Each artist who receives her book is to create a couple pages in the style of Jennifer Judd McGee. The journal I receive in June will be a different artist. I thoroughly enjoyed working in Kat's journal this month. I love collage work and McGee's style is full of inspiration. Once I got started it was hard to stop, I kept thinking of more things to do. 

I will start with the cover of her journal which Kat has worked on to begin her journey. Lisa Wright and Tammy Sprinkle worked on the cover as well and I have added some collage work on the right side. Once Stephanie gets this journal after me, she will complete the front cover. The artist on the rest of the journey, will collaborate on her back cover.

Kat's Canvas Cover 
She is using rings for her journal and will assemble the journal when it makes the last stop back to her.

Kat created this very cool and very detailed sign in page on the inside of her front cover for each of us to complete a square. It opens up from the center of the page.

Sign in page
I am the Frog on the bottom left

My first page was the most intimidating


Back side of my first page

Next I added a long insert just because
I like the look of different size pages

On the left is the back side of the long insert and on the right is the beginning of my second page that I have folded in half to make an additional page.

                                                                       The back of my last page



I didn't show the pages in Kat's journal that were done before mine, you can see various pages of each book as our journey progresses by clicking on the blogs on the right side of my blog. One thing I know for sure is that when Kat gets this journal back, it is going to be one Fabulous book!  This one is completed and now ready to mail to Stephanie.  I can't wait to see what artist I will be studying in June!  

STAY TUNED ...................... XO

    1. Thank you Lisa! I thought my blog could use a little updating, it has been the same since I started it and I didn't know what I was doing then either! Lol
      Kat's book was fun, I started out with McGee and then ended up with more of "me" I think! 😋

  4. Ooh just look at all that fabulousness!! I found her work fun once I got going but it was tricky to know where to start! It's a very different to style to what I had been used to. I love what you did - all those patterns mixing up to make an amazing spread. They really work so well. xx
