I was going to use the next blank page in my journal, but I've started the next few pages so decided to see where I can get to in 10 minutes from this starting point.
SET THE TIMER :: I needed a proper focal and I like to include butterflies so that was where I started. Knew I wanted the Mucha as soon as I laid hands on it. Added a bit of tape and some white doodles while I was thinking about that butterfly.
When I looked in my box of journaling "junk" I found a couple of useful bits from previous projects : a piece of paper embossed with distress embossing powder from a playday
and the remains of the green metallic painted modelling paste that I cut circles from for my indian wall-hanging. The torn bit of modelling paste paper looked enough like a wing to turn her into an angel. And I decided she needed a couple of tattoos so I used some small rub-ons.
I glued everything in place and TIMER STOP ::
I thought the page only needed some writing so looked for a pen. But as I considered what to write I decided the page is complete without anything else.
Once again, as happened yesterday, I decided I wanted to spend more than 10 minutes in my journal so I turned the page.
This page already had such a wonderfully full background, I thought it would need little effort to complete it...Turns out it took a lot longer than another 10 minutes to complete this page, but I had fun doing it and that's what it's all about after all.
