I have been in a pink and lace-kind-of-mood. I am normally more into earth tones than pastels and I don't even own any lace but when I sat to create a page in my journal, I wanted the page to be soft and creamy.
I started off by decoupaging a napkin I received from a dear friend onto the page along with a couple of torn pieces of paper. My friend is from England, a country that I am utterly in love with. Having a piece of it on my journal page would make it special.
I added gesso and a little bit of pink with my gelatos and kept adding layers until I was happy with the color. A bit of black touches here and there at the end made the page feel just right and ready for an image and some journaling. Of course, I decided on a little black and white bird.
Finally, I added a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson.
