Creatures of The Bay Journal by Wendy

I thoroughly enjoyed working in Joan's Creatures of the Bay Journal. I started the background by using three shades of blue and purposely going lighter towards the center for the illusion of light shining down. I used a circle stencil representing the waves or tides/flows of the ocean and also the drop of water used in the saying A rather abstract view point but I do like it.

After recently having fun in my own journals using silhouettes, I decided to use a silhouette of the beautiful whales of the ocean life. There were also some lovely patterned napkins with Joan's journal and I pulled one apart and used the beautiful shells as another layer of my ocean. I know I'm using the word 'ocean' more than "Bay" but this was what I was drawn to do in Joan's journal, so I went with it. Lastly, an appropriate saying for my spread was..."In one drop of water are found all the secrets of all the oceans"...Kahil Gibran
I am very pleased with the outcome of this layout and I hope it brings you some joy Joan, Thank you.


  1. This is lovely Wendy, the colours are great, and the lightening of the colours in the middle really works!

    1. Thank you very much Lisa, I think I'm getting better with my shading with practise xox

  2. Thank you Wendy for a terrific layout. I love it a lot. Dolphins are always such a good symbol of the sea and we get a few sightings in the westernport bay. I cant wait to get my journal home and to see it in its entirety.

  3. Lovely spread Wendy. I see lots of movement there.
