|Evidence page featuring a symphony concert we attended.|
I've just completed half of my spread that you can see above. Hubby and I attended a very special concert where the Central Iowa Symphony and Fort Dodge Symphony joined together. Mahler's 1st Symphony was performed during the second half of the concert. Near the conclusion of the performance, the French horn section is featured. At the conclusion, the French horn players all stand as their fanfare fills the air. It was a moving experience that I won't forget. And it was so meaningful...

My friend was also an artist. We became good friends at the pool where we both did our workouts. We quickly learned that we had so much in common. Working out was more fun when we discussed the latest "Watercolor Artists Magazine" or the projects we were working on.
For this journal spread, I chose aqua and gold acrylic paint and gesso to prep the pages. Aqua is for the pool and gold for the French horn. The spiral stamp reminded me of the shape of the horn.
I adhered ephemera from the concert on my page with soft matte gel. Chalk and oil pastel were added for more color. I also spritzed the page with walnut ink and wiped off the excess. Journaling was added with a Sharpie marker.
As for the right hand page, I plan to put a memorial to my friend on it.
