GARDEN journal page

A Garden is Heaven on earth - journal page

I've been noodling around, painting in my journal (I MADE time for once - I was desperately in need of some hands-on art time to clear the cobwebs...) and this is the result.

Closeup showing the lace, the ric-rac braid, punched paper border - and lots of paint.
Closeup showing paper flowers with glitter, my handpainted flowers all over the place.  I drew back into the piece with a black brush pen to give a strong outline, then overpainted the black lines with clear water to smudge it all, to add shadow.
Hope you like it! I finished the lettering (painting the chipboard etc) Sunday night with half an eye on the TV. And before you ask, yes, the lace is real.

  5. Thank you everyone! Yes, it was a total pleasure to be messing around with some paint. Thanks so much for commenting.

  6. Absolutely beautiful! I was in desperate need of clearing the cobwebs too. ;) Amazing how it works.

    Always fun stopping by, Susie.
    Much love,

  7. Wow, this is really pretty! But I like the one you made for Pink Saturday better. Can't believe you made those, I thought it was store bought.
