Farewell to my favorite park
When I was living in Michigan I had a favorite park. It was on the shores of Lake Superior. It was an amazing bike ride. Lots of hills and great sights. We had a few minutes to spare graduation weekend, so we went back to the park for a last visit.
I was really concerned with telling my story on this page. I wanted to journal the significance this place holds to me. I journalled on the cardstock and then cut it up. I had was too many strips, so I had to break it up into two separate areas.
The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye. I used distress ink on both of the solid pieces to make them fit the pictures with a more nature color. Then I misted with Smooch to pull some of the turquoise from the water.
The washi tape is Recollections from Michaels.
This tree turned out really cool. I picked up a pack of this metallic medium of sorts, but I have no clue what it is. It comes in a watercolor style container, but it the consistency of a wet eyeshadow. It looked so cool on the tree and the bottom of the page. I'd love to figure out what these are called, so I can find them. They have a really neat effect (except on your nail beds).
