Art Journal: Sky Had an Intensity

"Joy is to fun what the deep sea is to a puddle.
It's a feeling inside that can hardly be contained."
— Terry Pratchett

9x11" art journal page on watercolor paper

This was an interesting page to make. It started a few months ago with an experiment with fresh berries and a bit of coffee! I pressed the berries into the page and let them dry overnight, scraping off some of the excess. I think I used blackberries, raspberries and blueberries.

This week I added the images and a photograph of the old tree I took at a farm that hosts an annual pumpkin patch each fall and sells christmas trees each december. The sky was a brilliant blue, and when I stumbled upon those words, I knew they were perfect!

I stamped my journaling with little alphabet stamps, aren't they cute? I love to stamp my journaling because it takes a long time -- you get into a rhythm of stamping and it's meditative and calm.
