The challenge was to add words to the page and the theme for the week was friends. I wanted to do something completely different than what I normally do, so I decided to go more realistic, rather than messy.
I glued underpaper and bookpages to the page and then journaled across the whole thing. I added a light layer of gesso, and then drew a tree. Not sure why, but I did. In going with the friendship theme, I thought I’d add a couple of birds to the tree, using the paisley shape for their bodies. I used distress blue paint for the sky. I used distress green paint and stain for the leaves. The trunk and flowers were done with a black Pitt pen and Prismacolor pencils.
Not my favorite spread, but at least I was brave and tried something way out of my comfort zone.
Have a great day!
