I'm participating in a Round Robin Journal Swap over on UKStampers and the Journal I have at the moment has the theme "Places" so naturally I chose New Zealand. Although I no longer live there and am unlikely to again, it is still a beautiful country with lovely friendly people.
I wanted to capture the essence of New Zealand.
Deep blue sea
Green grass and trees
and of course the unique Maori culture
So I painted Rangitoto Island with the blue sky above and the sea below with water colour pencils, then stamped and collaged other images. It was OK but I thought it could be better (why are we so hard on ourselves?) Then I put it under something to flatten it....a week later I couldn't find it because I couldn't remember where I hid it.
Not meant to be so I created another page.
This one in my style - collaged.......
Then...of course....I found the other one ...ah well....an opportunity to relive some memories. But which one will I put in the RR Journal?
