A New Journal Spread...

Recently Cathy Bluteau offered her lesson from last year's 21 Secrets for only $5 so I took advantage of the bargain. It was a class about collage and doodling which are two of my favorite things.

This is the spread I created...
(sorry about the curl on the right top corner)

Here is the left side...

And the right side...

I enjoyed doing this spread. Most of it is bits and pieces from scrapbook papers, a couple of roses from a magazine, a bit of washi tape, a small copy of one of my paintings (the girl), along with a bit of doodling. I did most of the backgrounds with markers and colored pencils. It doesn't show but all the little centers on the flowers on the blue strip above, as well as the dots on the stylized floral piece above are done with a metallic bronze Sharpie. It just adds a bit of sparkle which I like.

Today was grocery shopping and errands. We just got home and I'm tired so I think a nap is in my future!
