Artful Journeys - Week #24 "Sail Away"

This week at Artful Journeys our prompt for you is "SAIL AWAY"



I drew inspiration from an old song from 1979 by Christopher Cross called "Sailing". This has always been one of my favorite songs and can "take me away," even if just for a two minute song.

Created in my 9x12 Canson mixed media journal, I used acrylics, NeoColor II's and watercolor for the background. Lettering with a bold Signo Uniball pen.  The sailboat was created entirely out out Washi tape, created on an old envelope and then cut out and applied to the page.

So sail away to your happy place, even if just for the time it takes you to make your journal page.

I'm doing my best to keep it artful this week!
