This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

First Journal Page - Graphic45 Times Nouveau Collection

Hello Everyone

I am so excited to share this post today as it is my first ever journal page! LOL...behind the times I know...but eventually got there! ;-)

I was inspired by Solange Marques journal pages on the Graphic45 blog a few days back and thought that after seeing her pages, I need to give this a go.

Being the watercolour fan that I am I had bought a watercolour pad and so this became my journal.
I did not even do the cover yet, as I had such a seed in my brain for the first page, that I just had to get cracking.  So here it is.

I really had so much fun making this page! ;-) I know that I need more practice but think it turned out pretty good anyways! ;-)

I have been wanting to use this inspirational quote for quite a while and I simply love it! ;-)
"No matter how you feel, Get up, Dress up, Show up and Never Give up"

I used the Times Nouveau collection from Graphic 45.  I did lots of gesso, embossing, stamping and of course water colouring.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I really do appreciate your visits!
Have a super Sunday!;-)
