I played on another journal page last night. It's probably another example of what not to DO but it seems I continue to do the Don'ts! My favorite saying has always been, "DO as I say, not as I DO"!
I started this page a while back just playing with paint, I think it's all Twinkling H20's but I don't remember. Then a few nights ago I found this rose image I had torn from a gift box ( a gift from a Fairy, containing the most gorgeous china mug and matching coaster with this design on it) and decided before I lost it, I'd go ahead and glue it on. I was going to just leave it as it was. But, nope, because it was laying nearest to me I saw another piece of the copper thread laying there so I grabbed it glued it on and of course then needed to find a bird. I found a bird, added that and thought I was done. But, nope, it was still laying there last night and I wasn't happy with the bird and rose because the rose was just sort of floating in space which made no sense. So I got a tad of paint and added the teeny bit of stem and leaf and while doing that I discovered I had glued on the rose image and hadn't finished trimming the white away! Oh well, it was too late to fix that. I was searching through the piles of small stuff sort of looking for some old lace when I found the lady image and I liked her so she went on instead of lace; then I found the quote which seemed to belong so that went on, only when I was tearing around the edges I ripped off a 'I' by mistake. Glued it on anyway because I liked it! Then I decided I didn't like the single bird so found another bird and also added a little butterfly from a napkin. All in all, it's just a journal page not meant to be a great piece of fine art but I still hate it when something just refuses to please me! Sometimes it is a good idea to have a sort of design in mind and not just start putting down images, especially if it's a one of a kind image that you didn't make a copy of! So, I'm not unhappy with it, just not pleased. Oh, and I wanted matching birds but couldn't find another gross beak at all so the bluebird was the right size and on it went! This is another pocket journal page.
