Art from Art- a new CJ!

The first circle journal I did ended up a disaster as it went missing in action. I had such fun doing it though- I've been waiting to join another circle journal for ages.
How could I resist a CJ based on Project Runway- I love that show!
We all have to choose a challenge from the show to base our CJ on. Mine is the art challenge, when the designers had to use a piece of art to inspire their design.

My front cover

I've used a painting of The Lady of Shalott by Waterhouse on the cover because that's what I've used as my inspiration for my layout, along with the poem by Tennyson.

My Intro Pages

My Layout

I used Stampotique's Newt for the layout and stitched The Lady of Shalott's woven tapestry as background. It illustrates my favourite scene from the poem.

Sign in pages

In keeping with the Project Runway theme I thought Heidi and Tim would be great witnesses to the sign in!

I'm looking forward to this CJ and hope I can MAKE IT WORK!
