The page on the right was inspired by a magazine image, and I used watercolour crayons for the circles of colour in the background.
The page on the right turned out more or less as I imagined in my head and the quote by Henri Matisse, 'There are always flowers for those who want to see them' was the inspiration.
Nearly there, well done if you are still with me.
This was the most troublesome page in the whole journal and I had painted over it twice previously. It had been glittery with stars, then was multicoloured with lots of mark making patterns, but I just didn't like it. I was inspired by some rust patterned paper and that became the focus, although you can't see it because it is up at the top, covered by paint. The original glittery stars were coloured with alcohol inks to blend more with the rust colours.
Finally, here is possibly my favourite page. It was inspired by some loose watercolour flowers painted by Creationsceecee. The stamp is one of my favourites too and a version of this may well be my ATC for May. I like the bright colours and dots of gold. The lady has glitter in her hair too. I would like to revisit this and improve the perspective of the flowers.
So now to start journal 3.
