Art Journals, JustJudyArt - greeting cards

I had to let go of outside voices in regards to my creations. The process of creating my greeting cards and art journal pages generates an almost Zen state: color combining, finding that mixed media alchemy and drafting just the right prose.

There are more life pieces that puzzle together to give me this very rich life, but space and time elude me.
