Mermaid themed Gypsy Journal

Mermaid themed Gypsy Journal - student project

I think it turned out into an ocean theme really, but it doesn't really matter what gets you started as long as you do it! :) My journals always evolve as I make them and they seem to want to tell their own story, so I just let them flow and see where they lead me.

I love this page out of a kids music learning book; "The Happy Halibut" and on the opposite page I use my white paint to create stripes instead of painting the whole page and it ended up inspiring those wavy lines.

This was just a page I was going to paint over but then I saw this sentence! What a gift! "An ocean trip is a discovery voyage". On the other side is a page from a Canadian Tide Tables booklet from 1973!

I created this sweet little poem out of a page in the "In Wink-a-Way Land" book.

"Kiss me, once again, on my cheek, but kindly, very."
