I began this spread with a fall theme in mind. I had recently made a bunch of gelli prints with some fall colors and the geometric leaves stencil and I wanted to use these prints to create a collage background for my pages. I love the way that painty papers start a page, even if you end up going down a completely different path than you intended in the beginning.
I feel like my pages ended up somewhere between summer and fall- that weird season when it’s cool at night and hot during the day, but the sunsets are deep and colorful.
I used a lot of colors on these pages, and at one point I thought I had gone too far. Thankfully I was able to reign it back in and I am very happy with the results.
I hope you enjoy this journal journey and the video!
