The challenge, to use a word and build your page around it. With the New Year, New President, and New Possibilities on the horizon, my word of choice was very clear to me. I want to see the word in a positive way, to embrace it and not be afraid of it. New means change, and change can be scary, but I am going to put one foot in front of the other and walk with purpose toward all things new.
For day 19 of the January Journal Crusade, Misty challenged us with using fabric and additional elements in our journals. I thought this would be the perfect time to do a cover. Now, originally I started this month with a small handmade journal, I moved to a new 9×7 watercolor fieldbook to do the color portion. I am going to combine the two to make one journal for this month.
Taking some white, buff, and burnt umber paint, I filled in the uncovered areas and blended in some of the edges of the images.
