art journal page


  I love working really wet in my journals.  I slop paint and ink around like crazy.  Tip - don`t wear your favorite jeans when you are letting the paint fly!  Ask me how I know!  I often spritz the paint or ink with water to make it run together and bleed into interesting combinations.  I had been doing that in a journal and realized there was way too much ink√©water on the page and it would never dry so I got out another journal smooshed it down into the excess.  This is the resulting page.  I quite like the way it turned out.

In case you can`t read the quote it says
Expect to have hope rekindled.
Expect your prayers to be answered in wonderous ways.
The dry seasons in life do not last.
The spring rains will come again.
