Journal 52- week 6-window

Standard

I tried a few new techniques with this page. I used both gelato and a watercolor pencil to make this background. I then stamped the face as well as the trees and colored them in. I used bubble wrap and acrylic pain to add some texture. I added the window which i did my best to cut out and glue down. I wrote my quote in pencil first then went over it in pen. This worked much better for me. As the page still felt undone, I decided to add the stamps in the upper corners and the branch in the center. I colored them in with gel pens. As a final touch I added the bird perched on top of the window.
 
This page was inspired in part by a conversation with a friend in a journal group, in which he was talking about how the loss of his wife to cancer had taught him to live life as one never knows how long they have.
