My Page Recipe


weekend, originally uploaded by sapphire252.

For the Composition Art Journals gang:
Start by writing your title on your page. Then take 3 colours, and randomly draw swirls and wavy lines all over your page. Draw them wide enough that you can write on top of them. If you have to, draw the swirl and then "build" upon it with more of the same colour, creating a thicker line if necessary. Then using a fine liner in one of the same three colours, write what you did that day. These things may not seem important at the time, but they are so fun to look back on!
Now draw some flowers, or a favourite design ( I used some spring daffodils) - or you could even use stickers - around the page.
Lastly, I have taken some watercolour paint and filled in the white spaces with more colour.

This is very creative. And as always your lettering is wonderful.
