This is the first page ,well second actually of my first art journal. after it was painted etc I was at a loss what to do with it so it got left alone. Then a couple of Saturdays ago I attended the second art journal workshop at the Cubby Hole with Sarah Anderson. The workshop was all about techniques for adding colour. This page was my wax resist page. I drew flowers in purple, yellow and black in crayon and put colour over the top... I hated it!!! . I can't draw for toffee, thats why I LOVE stamping so this page was left to lanquish ... again!
Today Ive had a new bed in my " making room "( nooo not for me to rest on, although at times that seems like a good idea,) but for my guests. My "making room" is also my spare room. You can imagine I had quite a bit of tidying and sorting to do to take out the old bed ( which was absolutely covered in craft stuff) to make room for the new bed. whilst I was moving things around I came accross a big flower stamp and the idea for the above came to mind!
I have not covered the crayon flowers completely, if you look close you can just see them peeping from behind the black flowers and also through the black ink... I quite like that. I wanted to be reminded of why the page ended up the way it did. The journalling, is it one L or two? ( well a few words) was computer generated. It says ,where there's a will there's a way.
