I wish  that I could remember which magazine I found this quirky model with the BIG hair...was it maybe Oprah?  Anyway, she looked French so I tried to use that theme and even gave her an older dignitary boyfriend.  Tee He!!!  It's fun to make up a story in my head as I am selecting the collage pieces.  Maybe the story would go something like this:

She was all decked out in her finest evening attire and with her hands on her hips, and a flirtatious look on her face, she did a little pirouette as her dignitary boyfriend watched from the top floor of the Embassy.  She knew that she looked hot but what she didn't know is that with her hair piled high on her head...over four feet high...that there was no way in which she and her HAIR would make it through the DOOR!  Her boyfriend just shook his head in disbelief!  It was not going to be a fun evening!

Here is a progression of how I made the journal page:

Collage over a background painted with acrylic paint.

Embellished with doodles and lettering.

Shading and final touches added.

Hope that you enjoyed the journal page and story!

Until next time!



  1. I enjoyed the story as much as the instructional process. Such fun!
