Technicolor girl---and a journal page

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th!! Now, I don't think my girl here enjoyed hers.
She looks pouty, doesn't she? She is just doing her model pose just before she breaks into laughter. This is the best way to describe all of these somber girls I have been painting lately. This is another girl that I pulled from the stash that was colored in with colored pencils so I painted her with acrylic colors. I really do like the open acrylics the best. You can come back and work them a bit more before it dries. But I do mix it with some regular acrylics because I don't have that many colors of the opens.

Here is a quick journal page. I like to try and put an element on each page that I have painted or drawn. The architectural "D-Dream" stamp and a new one that I think is really cool. I am sure you will probably see this one again. I think that this small size of the journal sure does make things quicker.

Love that Dream stamp, and the pages you created with it, beautiful. where on earth do you find such unique interesting stamps?
I'm loving your girls, I think the colour lends itself to this kind of contemplative, intense look.

Love the pages and of course your new stamp is Fab! I have a stamp just like your 'believe' it's one of my favorites, too.

She doesn't look pouty - she looks seductive.

Your journal pages are so beautiful. I can't really find the right word for it, 'serene' maybe? And the girls are all very nice too.
