|First, I colored the paper haphazardly |
with water soluble wax pastels
(aka aqua crayons).
|Next, I water brushed the paper to blend colors|
and give the page a more "painted" look.
|I added a stamp and my journaling, and voila, |
the final product!
My page in no way compares to those of my friends, but the true beauty is in the fact that I don't care. I love how spontaneous and imperfect I allowed myself to be in exchange for a creative, fun, and therapeutic outlet that captures less of what I do and more of who I am.
