Sometimes you just have to DOODLE! How did this page start in my journal?
I'll show you...
I was just using up extra paint that was on my palette on a blank page in my journal. Guess I was "in the moment" because the next parts I didn't take pictures of. I started adding bits of paper scraps on my desk. Then I used quite a few "found" objects to make marks. I did use one stencil on the page. It is the StencilGirl Apples and Pomegranate's designed by Jessica Sporn. You can see the branch throughout the page.
It sat undoodled until yesterday when I just picked up a pen and started playing.
The rest is history :)
