Joan's guest spot in round 2- Life as I see it.

This journal belongs to round 2 but came to me because of a big of a mix up with Gail's round 2 and round 3 journals.  Anyway after some discussion, it was decided I would work in this one, rather than the round 3 one.

I used a piece of water colour card that was gelli printed, then added some more paint and ink spray to create the background.  Tissue transfer created the owls and other birds.Added some washi tape in middle, bottom of left page and top of right page for texture. I  glued some circles of pattern paper on the pages, and using textured paste and stencil, added some texture on top. The beautiful dream catcher embellishment is by Kerry Fellows. I drew a couple of flowers and highlighted some of the owls ect with white gel pen.  Added some white paint for interest.  Added the typed quote.  I rather liked how it turned out, but I really need to start using some other colours rather than blue and green in my pages. As all the tags Gail had enclosed were used, I created my own to fit in with Gail's and the page.

Hope you like it Gail.
