Lesley's page in Colleen's Journal. Things with wings.

So this month it is my turn in Colleens gorgeous journal and her theme is "Things with wings".

Last month I was lucky enough to attend an art journalling class with the very talented and funny Dyan Reavley.

So Of course this month my page was going to be inspired by what I did in her classes.
I started off with a basic background using Dylusions paints and stencils.

I then used some collaged images "flying fishy ladies"
I think by now most have realized my style is a bit grungy and definitely I love things that are a bit quirky.

I also added some doodling using a black marker and some stamping.
I then decided I would add an extra "WINGED" flap to my pages.

adding some of Dyans stamped bird images and a quirky quote
"The early bird can keep the worm because worms are gross and mornings are stupid"
I then added the flap pages onto my double page.

The extra pages added in.

the left side.
"Refuse to be average, let your heart soar as high as it will."

The right side.
"Untill you spread your wings you have no idea how far you'll fly."

I hope you like my pages colleen I definitely had fun making them xx
