Another journal page

This is another page of my mini journal. I finished it today. The journal as i said before is all about things i am and things i love. Todays page depicts the moors and heather. There is a kind of tranquility that is unique to moorland that takes my breath away. I love the moors best when its wilderness is unbroken and the wind is blowing through the grasses and heather ... nothing on earth is like it. I hope this page shows a little of that in colour and design.

The lady is dressed in a beautiful heathery colour so she was additional but the Background colours are spritzed on to show the colours of the moor grasses then I added some hand painted heather and grasses and then wet to blend and blur. The text is from a book of flowers and describes some of the ancient uses for heather. Once over heather was used to make sweeping brushes.
Everything else is inked and i added the 'moors' wording just to finish.
