The inspiration for a journal page came from a fabulous tile I saw in a shop while we were away - didn't photograph it - I thought my memory would serve me well enough and anyway I don't like the idea of folk photographing my stuff that's on sale in a shop in Morecambe!!!
So….got home and set to - Oh Dear!!
The tile I saw had a beautiful flower image in the centre and then drips running down behind it - I guess it was glazed first with the image and then the drips added. It was really vibrant - it was also quite expensive!
I drew and painted the image, painted with Paper Artsy Frescos and then used PA Matte Glaze over it - OK so far - then the drips….. well they just went their own way - I think if I'd added more I would have made it worse! I wiped off the paint from the image -laughed and the words I wrote on the bottom came into my head - added a dictionary quote and called it a day!!!
As you can see I had a few problems - so many that I'm afraid in the end I think I made the best of a bad job!
I am going to link to Brenda's Visual Journey blog party just because I feel that Journalling isn't all about the perfect - I tried and it didn't work - move on!!!
Thanks for looking, Chris
