Colleen's Page in Lesley's Journal.


Lesley's journal is so beautiful & about A4 size.  I started by doing a colourful painted background & added some stencilling

Then I mixed up some magenta texture paste & added the flowers & dragonflies. Then mixed green texture paste for the stems & leaves. Added some blue to the leftover magenta paste to make purple, & used the small writing stencil here & there. I drew the girl on some extra card, then cut her out & pasted her into the journal

I couldn't get on with her face side on, (she looked like miss piggy), so covered that area & drew another face, this time front facing. I emphasized  the yellow area behind her & added more stencilling. The dress I stencilled with white paint. Over her hands I glued ribbon with dangly bits to look like she is holding it while dancing. 

The words on the left page say Believe you can & you will. And on the right page So she danced with her Heart & soul.

I really enjoyed working in your journal Lesley & I hope you like it.
