Below is my first try at a journal page, my Bestie, who is a big journal fan has been trying to explain to me the concept behind journalling. I still don't really understand it or see the point of it, I don't like getting messy and putting layers of things, paint/paper over layers of other paint/paper just doesn't do it for me but having talked about it I thought I would give it a go. So here is my first journal page. My daughter did a random number and the image below is the one that was picked, as soon as I saw it I knew the sort of thing I wanted to do with it.
I used various shades of DI to colour the page, I wanted to make it woody (I may go back and try and make the background look more bark like at a later date). I then coloured 2 images so I could 3D some of the pieces. I used Copics, Promarkers and DI as paint. I thank used a gold marker, which didn't really show up so I highlighted the word Family with black and white markers and then wrote & Friends and highlighted these too.
