Wish Big Journal Page

Hi everyone!

So today's stream I decided to use my watercolour journal (gifted to me by Zandra). I had no idea what I wanted to create on the page and just let the girls in the chat lead the way, which they did LOL.

So after adding my acrylic paints to the page Kathy and Eileen said I should try to use distress oxide inks over the acrylic. OK, challenge set LOL. I must say it looked awesome! I really love the different shades of brightness from the acrylics against the oxides!

Once we were happy with the background I thought it looked magical so decided to add a fairy! That done, I added a tree to the page then the title. Voila! All in an hour's time too! It really can be done LOL
