This is a 2-page spread as suggested by Tammy of Daisy Yellow. I took her class Novel Approach to Art Journal.   In this lesson, the instructions were to start with a painted page and then glue down various squares of graphic and text that resonated with you.  I’m not very happy with my color choice…the dark green doesn’t work for me.
