Take a Word ...

... and that word is 'bloom', which it just so happens ties in with my journal page for week 10 of Sherrie JD's course.


I glued old text to the top half of the page and then, once dry, drew in the flowers. To colour the background I first used soft pastels and then added more depth with water-soluble oil pastels. The flowers were coloured with acrylic paint and the details added using various pens. I glued on the strips to the top and bottom of the page and then added the text. Spring is here!
