I completed this page and was very happy with the way it turned out. I love the bird with the extra long legs, singing out to the world. I love the colorful flowers and the borders that I was trying to incorporate. This was my first attempt at this lettering method and I thought it came out very nice. The page was beautiful. Then.... The mail came and I received the Dylusion Ink Sprays that I had impatiently been waiting for and proceeded to try them immediately...on the next page in my journal...I didn't realize how much they would bleed through the page <sheepish grin>. Thus the big ink blobs on this page and the green polka dots on the girls face. The ink blobs I can live with but the polka dots make the girl look like she is ill. Very, very hard for me to think..."there are no mistakes" and..."I didn't mean for it to turn out this way, but I like it" because, I' don't really like it.
This is the page that I did that ruined the previous page. My sister was up for a visit and had just returned home. I was missing her and wishing that she lived closer. She has a thing for Owls and I was feeling a bit silly and came up with this page. I love it! I love the colors, I love the new Dylusions "Further Around The Edge" leave stamp, I love the owls, the girl, the highlights on the leaves, everything. I am so glad that I bought the Dylusion inks. They are beautiful and I am so glad that I got them.
