I'm taking a few classes in medicinal herbs. In addition to my class notes, I decided to add some art journal pages.
The first one is on lavender.
I started with The Graphics Fairy free digital images of a lavender plant and a lavender seed packet (the packet was distressed with Ranger ink and propped up with foam tape).
I tea dyed a teabag, then cut a piece for the top left corner and added some washi tape. Looking incomplete, I randomly stamped with small acrylic stamps from STAMPlorations and 7 Gypsies.
To the bottom right seed packet, I wrapped around it a tea bag string and label. I placed behind it a torn dictionary page. In front of it, I added some dried lavender buds from the class and a stamped bird from Darkroom Door Rubber Stamps Love Birds set.

Today I'm a happy camper. When I upgraded to Windows 10, my PhotoShopElements 7 no longer was compatible. I was without my program for over 7 months. I finally bought PSE 2018 and, after many hours of tech support, I am back in the business of creating digital compositions!
I played with cropping, layering, color, erasing, and shadowing.
Composition is 5x7 for my journal page and a card topper.
Gecko Galz BINGO card, female figure from Splish Splash college sheet, cropped crab from Seaside Memories collage sheet, brown strip from La Isla Bonita paper pack
PSE2018: letters to spell BEACH, beach ball, background paper
