Journal pages - tropical leaves

A favorite theme for me, always, is leaves.

Here's some I did for my journal. Having spent quite a bit of time in Hawaii, on Maui, tropical leaves are some of my very fav. Here's a couple I drew on ledger paper with colored pencil, cut out and stuck on journal pages with acrylic gel medium. The backgrounds are acrylic and I was experimenting with light and dark backgrounds with similar subjects. Which do you like better?


  1. Hey Kimber...
    I like them both, however, the top one is my favorite of the two. I love the look of that ledger paper background...and I know I have some of that hiding here somewhere...leftover from the days in retail offices before we got computers & Lotus (remember that one?)...way before Excel!
    Love your journal...thanks for sharing your progress.

  2. I agree, I like them both but top one is my fav.
    I don't have ledger paper left over from before computers but a tablet I bought somewhere. If you need some, let me know. It's a big tablet. like 12 by 24 inch pages.
    Thanks for checking out my blog and commenting!
