This week I have four pages to share. Unfortunately, I used my phone for the pictures, thus they are super blurry. Boo for phones with crappy cameras.
First, I completed the Fortune Favors the Bold page. I filled in the background with different tangles and tried to make the bottom look like peacock feathers. I wanted it to feel bolder towards the bottom of the page. I think I achieved that.My second page was inspired by a Journal52 prompt. The prompt was "Just add a Dinosaur – think of a time when having a sense of humor was important, or something that really makes you laugh – maybe a comic strip or a joke you’ve seen somewhere in a book or magazine or newspaper or online." I immediately thought of the Was Not Was song "Walk the Dinosaur," so I copied the lyrics to the song for the background and then pasted a cool picture of a dinosaur fighting a crocodile on top. I like it!
My third page is a quote page. The quote, "Forever - is composed of Nows," is from an Emily Dickinson poem which was featured in the book Paper Towns. I have been wanting to try a flower background, so that's what I did here. I decided to color the letters and leave the flowers in black and white. I'm still not sure if I am happy with that. I might end up adding more color at a later date.
That last page showed me that I need more practice with my lettering, especially my bubble cursive lettering, so I decided to practice. My fourth page is not complete, but it is a practice of some lettering. I need a lot of practice with this still.
