These journal pages are for Gemma. Gemma chose the color purple for the dominant color in her journal. I worked on Gemma's pages outside her journal just because they were easier to move around and I am quite messy. My pages turned out larger than the original pages in Gemma's journal. I had no immediate idea of how I was going to add them. That's what I love about art journals.. challenges, imperfections and washi tape!
"If you don't know where to start, start at the back". That actually worked out pretty well for me. Most of the time, where I end up is completely off the path of where I started. I love it when a good plan falls apart and possibilities take over.
Gemma had some pressed flower petals in her journal ..... a sure sign of a kindred spirit...
Her welcome page in front said " Take a Magical Voyage dare, go here"!, So I did and along the way, I incorporated a cardboard insert and stopped for a spot of Tea along my voyage.
This is the beginning of my pages at the back of the book.
NEVER look down, they prefer to FLY ~

The next two pages
Gemma's don't cry over spilled milk or a little rain, .. instead they pull up their boot straps, get back on their horse and can be heard yelling.."YE HAW - LET'S RIDE" !
