Life Can Be Prickly, Bloom Any Way; JJ Spread

Working in the Junk Journal again on a two page spread. I love this wonky circles and decided to film the process.

In 2019, I visited my mom and sister in Tucson and it was during the time when the cacti were blooming. I took a ton of photos - I'm not even lying! Many I put in a scrapbook but there are many that are still sitting in the photo envelope. I pulled two out to add to this spread.

Watch the video here:

It's so fun using the best tool - my fingers - to create this bright spread. I changed the circles to look more like cacti by adding "needles" with the black pencil and making the white dots into flowers.
