Lost for words

Another page in my AJ, made with collaged Tomoe River paper, acrylic inks, acrylic paints and Prismacolour pencils ...


Really enjoyed playing with Tomoe River paper for the first time - it takes wet media beautifully but it's so thin and very smooth. It's really meant for pen and ink I believe, but I haven't tried that yet.

The girl in the boat was drawn separately on a scrap of watercolour paper, coloured in, cut out and applied to the page along with torn pieces of collage paper ...


Trouble is, I can't decide whether it needs some words and what the words would be - any ideas??

Oh gosh, this is amazing Annie. I love the turbulence, the splashing, the drips and drops and the sense of hope. How about something like......."There is a fluidity to love, an ebb and flow, and it can either become a raging river or a quiet stream, but the woman standing on the shore has no say.

Such a cool spread! Looks great as is, but if you wanted to add some found words cut from a book page that might work! Just popped in to wish you a happy 10th WOYWW anniversary, Annie! Sorry you missed it! xx
