Today while waiting for bread to rise I had some fun creating another journal page. I used a background spread I had done a while ago and added a wonderful quote by Longfellow. Considering the grey clouds outside, it just seemed like a good choice. I started by adding an umbrella cut out of a page of text and then I added the quote.
Because I often end up leaving out words as I write, I thought it would be safer to write the quote in pencil first and then go over it with my Pitt pen.
And finally, the finished piece, complete with a few clouds and raindrops. It's hard to see in the photo, but the raindrops are made with metallic pens which give them a bit of shimmer. If only all rainy days could be this bright and colourful!
