Trees - the Last Page in Louise's Journal

Louise's Journal arrived safe and sound after a short vacation via the South Pole I think, even though I didn't find any penguin feathers attached.  Louise visited just after it arrived so she was able to see it was safe and sound but had to wait a little while longer for its return.

My page started with my desire to use a favorite leaf stamp around the edges of the page and a quote I had seen online.

The background was just a gentle touch of color using my Pan Pastels and a little bit of stenciling, before adding the leaves, some of which were stamped and colored directly on the page, others cut out and stuck on.

I roughly drew and painted a border to frame my main imagery and quote.  The poem/quote took up a entire page and I drew a simple tree on the other side coloring it in with Posca Paint Pens.

I am planning on delivering this now completed journal back to Louise in person in the coming weeks.

Thanks to everyone who was in this round and worked in and on my journal which I also have back safe and sound, I loved seeing the imagination of each of you and taking inspiration from all these beautiful pages.

I look forward to joining a round again with you all some time soon.

  2. Well done Danie, love your spread!

  3. That is so lovely Danie. Very soothing and restful. Now about your quote.....that was a song maybe back in the 50's and I sung it instead of reading it. I have posted the song on the group page.


Thank you so much for popping in to see our lovely journals as they are developing. We love to see your comments.
