I coloured the page, back and front with letraset aqua markers, this is how it looked to start...
and after they were blended with a damp brush.
I printed out this image of a beautiful mountain, I decided I didn't want it on white card stock, so I printed it again on Safmat.
I stamped tiny leaves around the edge of the front, and stuck the safmat image on top.
My title is 'Dreams stay with you, like a lover's voice across a mountainside...stay alive.' These are lyrics from a Big Country song.
On the back, I again stamped the tiny leaves but also added some trees across the page.
Added the final part of the title.
and my journalling.
I realize much of what I put on my backgrounds gets covered up, you might ask why bother putting it there at all..why the effort.Well not everything is meant to be seen all the time, having those elements is part of the process, it is how the page evolves....much like life.
that they are no longer seen is not the point, the fact that they are still there and that they have contributed.. is what matters.
