Playing In My Journal

I'm in love with trees. I've always been a nature girl, walking barefoot all summer - grass, gravel or sand - just to feel the connection with the earth. I love sitting at the beach or in a forest and letting nature sink into me.

I've also always loved the tree motif. I have loads of tree art around my house - mostly stuff that I've created myself.

Today in my journal I'm making trees and leaves with watercolours.

I love how the dark and light spots show so well with watercolour paints.

I decided to carry this branch across two pages and then to cut the right-hand page. Neat effect, right?
Just me playing in my journal. No biggie.


  1. I LOVE what you did with the cutout branch....makes your tree come alive!!! Way cool :)

  2. It is indeed a neat effect, a concept that I may have to steal for one of my journal entries. Consider yourself an inspiration.

  3. I've always been such a houseplant, and am working to embrace nature. It's not hard, either! I love your branch effect in your journal...clever!
