At the weekend my mum gave me a supplement devoted to David Bowie that came with one of the weekends newspapers. Initially I scribbled onto the journal with some colour from my watercolour pencils to create the coloured background. I then made the mistake of using texture paste with a star stencil before I really knew where I was going with the page. In my mind I knew I was going to use some lyrics from the track Jene Genie from the Starman album - hence using the star stencil and then add images from the magazine. I should have done it the other way round so that the images were being adhered onto a smooth surface. A lesson learned but then I am pretty knew to this journalling adventure so I'm forgiving myself. Then I thought the lyrics that I had chosen were even more appropriate to the page - 'let yourself go'.
I've also used a mixture of watercolours, Wink of Stella and one of my newly acquired (see Wednesdays post) gel pens. All in all I'm pretty happy with my collage journal page. I wonder what this weeks prompt will challenge me to create.
