Here are some more visual journal pages. The one on the left here uses an inspirational calendar picture surrounded by colored pencil textures. I could see making a series of this type of thing in the quilt format. On the right is a picture of a glacier, I found the shape really intriguing.
This page started with the red cones imagery from a magazine photo, and then the lava photos, etc. Love the intensity of the color combo.
