Art Journal Tuesday - Don't Make Me Pick One!

Stampin' Bella changed Art Journal day to Tuesday which suits me better for sure. But, I still had to rush to get my page done. We're stuck in the house too much in the winter time so in the summer we try to cram as much outdoor activities as we can which is great except I don't get as much art therapy in!

Not happy with this week's page at all! Did not turn out as I expected so I doubt if it will be included back into the assembled album. But that's what's so great about doing these pages, you find out what works and what doesn't and it's just one page and some paint, ink and paper. Not a big expense at all. So here's the page...the challenge this week was to do a page in our favorite colour.

By the way, I don't have a favorite colour!

OK, first problem - I made the centre image way too big. I wanted a vase of flowers (and I wanted to add my favorite birds and butterflies too) and I was going to journal around and around it. Ran out of room before I even got once around. Second problem, my pen kept skipping on the slick surface and I had to redo some of it so it looks messy. Third problem, I grabbed the wrong pen in my haste when I wrote the "Don't make me pick one" on the vase and it is too thick for small letters. Oh well, it is what it is.
