Examples of One Palette...

This image is from the Library of Congress. I turned this into a journal page.

This is from one of my digital collages.

I used one of my photographs on this page. I do love doors.

Here I used one of my favorite Library of Congress images. Don't you know this was a hard life. The fragment stamp is one of Robin Marie Smith's.

This image is one of my own photographs. I turned it to basic black and white through my photoshop/elements program.


Here are just a few examples from my one palette experiment. I really learned a lot from doing this. Hope you enjoy!

I LOVE the subtle tones of your palette! Each of your pages is lovely to behold. Thanks for sharing your process, and the beautiful end results! (And many thanks for the unfinished palette as well!)

Ditto on Terri's comment Elizabeth. So many different results from one palette.
You should be selling this stuff and making lots of money!

Super work here. I love it. It's quite sophisticated in feeling.

That "hard life" picture reminds me of my great grandmother who managed to live it till she was 90! I think the weak died off young and the rest kept on going.

I love how each page is so different and stands alone and yet, put them together and you have that WOW effect.
I cant wait to see more of your work!
