Journal Page - 10/7/13

I have to explain this one. This started from a photo I took while in Blaye, France. I wanted to do this page in watercolor—I'm teaching myself watercolor and I'm not very good at it yet—but I really wanted to try. Well...I messed it up. So I decided to cover it up with collage bits. I grabbed the top pack of napkins in my basket, which happened to be roses and geraniums. Then I added the stamped text and a stamped a face that didn't come off very well so she's a little ghostly. Wrote the word France, and that's about it. It's a collage to cover the watercolor OOPS that became a collage OOPS. :)

  1. Yay for learning watercolors!! I am self taught as well and am still learning. They are so addicting, so frustrating and so fun all at the same time ;p I actually really LOVE how this page turned out! It looks like you set out to achieve this look. BRAVO!!
