SaWo #68 Make a Journal Page

I don't have a journal but I have always fancied making random pages & making them into a minibook. The page below is a kind of mix of all that is in my head right now.
I used to live on a Dairy Farm & I love Friesian Cows. I was very lucky to find this image of a cow in a magazine a few days ago & cut it out hoping to use it with the sellotape transfer method that I used on my tag for the TIO challenge on Wednesday. Perfect for this journal page. I have painted gesso over a book page & applied distress inks in a rainbow effect to illustrate that I love all colour. The travel words, bicycle & Paris ticket stamp are because I'm working on travel themes for my DT layouts & two other (secret for the moment) travel themed projects. The thistle picture, again sellotape transfer method as i just loved the picture as soon as I saw it. The clock because time is important to me, I have a fixation with images of clocks. The heart because mine is sad right now but all the happy colours cheer me. The rest are fill in pieces that represent things I like really.
I really enjoyed making this. It was great & I will make more now I have tackled my first!
