tiny little flower


"Who would have thought it possible that a tiny little flower could preoccupy a person so completely that there simply wasn't room for any other thought..." - Sophie Scholl.
I thought that this quote was perfect for this journal page! This was built up with a layer of old sheet music, then a vellum sheet with the coloured circles, then the collaged vintage image of the girl. I then used scrapbooking paper blocks around the outside of the page. There is watercolour pencil around the collaged image that I wet with water and brush. I finished by embellishing with orange watersoluble crayon and purple sharpie. The saying is done with computer font.
I love using the vintage book images and pages of text or music. It is wonderful taking all the different elements and then mixing them all together.
