A Page About a Porch

“Don't be discouraged by a failure. It can be a positive experience. Failure is, in a sense, the highway to success, inasmuch as every discovery of what is false leads us to seek earnestly after what is true, and every fresh experience points out some form of error which we shall afterwards carefully avoid.”
John Keats

This is the book I'm altering, with a background of golden airbrush colors (aka airbrush acrylics) drizzled on the page and pushed around with a hairdryer! If you want to feel like a kid, try that. Then I aded collage, washi tape, neocolors and journaled about the photo on the right top of the page - a photo I took in Ghent when we visited in 2009. The journal fodder includes a Divine chocolate label (my absolute fav), abstract art I created, fabric, magazine clippings, subway ticket from Hanna

Love this page, and makes me wonder how the whole weekend could pass and I didn't open my journal? :-/ Though I've been biking, so I can't complain, just wish I could journal now.

And yes, I see the ticket numbers! How fun!

Love the quote - and the pages. I wish I could achieve something as free looking. I seem to be just writing lately - maybe because I've had a dramatic change of pace going back to a day-job?

just started playing with my new airbrush colors yesterday. yummy goodness.

Love this page! You have such a gift for making pages that are messy and cohesive at the same time. And I adore your use of color!

I have never blown paint around with a hair dryer...but now I'll have to! I really love your background and your layering!
