Week 2-3 Journal (First try)
I used the paper which was from one of my childhood bedrooms. I recently had been tagged in a photo from Kindergarten and thought the two seemed to go hand in hand. I also used oil pastels for the first time. I must say it is definately true - the better the materials the better the end result. I didn't find this project as fun and enticing as making the background papers but that is because it is outside of my comfort zone. (Not that background papers are in my comfort zone but are more familiar than anything I have done in the past.) I will not be giving up - I will do more journals - practice makes perfect or more satisfaction.
Oh and - the words on the picture are symbolic of my motto "Why Not Both".....I remember being "fought" over and asking to choose - Baby Wart or Sugar Pie....really, who could choose between those two prime choice names?
