Watercolor journal page

Happy friday friends!  It's been a rough week here with everyone in the family sick.  I'm looking forward to sleeping in a little bit!  Not too much crafting going on this week, but I did finish this journal page using Twinkling H2Os. You can really see how the page sparkles with this paint in the lower left corner where the sun hit it just right.  I used three or four blues and purples.  I just love how the colors blend so well.

 Can you see the sparkling spiderweb on the page?  I got the idea from a class in the 21 Secrets journaling classes that my bff bought me for my bday :)  I created it by lightly drawing the web in pencil, then white pen, and finally Stickles glitter glue.   Here's a close up so you can see it a bit better.  It's much more glittery in person.

The quote by Oscar Wilde, along with the colorful lettering, was inspired by Soul Scrappers April Art Journaling challenge.  I just love this quote.  It makes me think in terms of perspective, time and renewal.  The large clock along the bottom was a Tim Holtz mask, as is the smaller in the upper left corner.  (Thanks Lisa!)

I am entering my journal page in the following challenges:
