Isn't It Odd.......

I think it is odd that with both of these journal spreads I like the one on the right but the one on the left needs something.

NEEDS SOMETHING
I did these after watching Milliande's January journaling videos. I used a wax candle, crayons (kids kind & watercolor) pencil, watercolors,vinyl stickers, acrylic paint, black cat ink & dip pen, stamped some drawer liner with staz-on, my handmade papers, gesso & sharpie poster paint pens.

I just have been puttering around, not feeling creative. So I am trying to show up & work until I find "it" again.

We are getting the beginning of our BLIZZARD!!! It looks pretty but Oh my it's a lot of snow!!

the first 'needs something ( :-) ) has too much big green spiral going on -- no balance in the picture. and the second 'needs something' just needs some contrasting color to bring it out!

love the artwork!!

Milliande is always so generous with her knowledge, yeah? I love the videos...

I like your spreads. I understand that feeling of something missing. The only thing I can think of is that you have writing on the right and none on the left. My eye kinda stalls... does that make sense? I think you just need to add a bit more to get the eye moving... ; )

Take it easy!

I love Milliande's tutorials. These are all great pages, you are so creative. I agree that some are in "need" but of what? I don't know. I have such a hard time with putting pages together! I love them though!
