Circle Swap Journal

I've been working on some circle pages for Lenna's circle swap. I won't show these to you yet as I'm still making more but at the same time I also made some pages for me to keep for my own journal. I'll add all the colour pages I receive back in this swap to one of my circle journals so I will have such an amazing colourful circle! Can't wait.!!

I actually have 2 circle journals as believe it or not, Lenna send me my 7Gypsies circle journal and it took more than 2 months to get to me. I panicked and bought another one on Ebay. So I have loads of pages to play with. I made my pages in a variety of colours as I already had some backgrounds from previous projects which fitted the colour bill so worked more on those. Ended up with green, turquoise, orange and one yellow page so far. Want to do more in red so that I can mail 20 pages to Lenna in due course.

The pages I made for myself have a travel theme as well as a colour one. I might well end up making a separate album for these with my own art, all colour and travel related. Just need MORE TIME!!!!

This yellow one has a fabric image of Florence (from Artchix, but unfortunately they no longer sell their fabric sheets) overlaid with a transparency of Michelangelo's Davids head. Also a vintage gold trim (from an old convent in Belgium via Ebay).

My turquoise circle also has trim, blue this time, and from a vintage pack from LostArtCreations. I added a paper figure from a blue dress (no idea where she came from) and text from a vintage book which was oh so appropriate. You will recognize the background from my January Journal Quilt fabric/paper collage. I always save every little scrap just in case!
More circles tomorrow!

Your circle pages are all so delicious. This is the first peek I've had at any circle pages for our swap and I am thrilled at what you are doing. I think I will put a link on the creative swaps Blog & send people here : ))))
