Journaling: Jocelyn lately has had this thing with leis. Leis are Hawaiian garlands made of flowers. Usually orchids, plumeria or lehua blossoms. We have none of these. But we wanted to make leis all the same... So we picked flowers off of our oleander shrubs. Call me a bad parent if you must. Oleander is one of the most poisonous plants and contains numerous toxic compounds. Many of which can be deadly to people, especially young children if ingested. Which is actually why they wore them with great supervision. We had our fun. We made the leis and wore them until they wilted. Then we threw them away. Jocelyn loves leis made of fake flowers, and was flabergasted at the thought that you could actually make them from real flowers. Very very fun!
Note: I played with the colors of the elements to personalize the look. The inking on the edges of the leaves were done with the selection wand & stock paint brushes. The border around the journaling was created with the rounded rectangle tool.
