Flowers have a language all their own. They impart lushness, lend decadence, make us feel loved. They can even bring hope and ease.
Flowers weave stories in our journals and bring nature’s beauty onto our pages.
What if you knew you could bring more flowers, your own flowers, into your pages?
Alice loves to use flowers as a way to bring handmade images into her journal pages, bridging different part of her pages with color and a flower’s promise of healing.
She will be sharing her tips and techniques on how to add both understated and outrageous blooms to your pages.
