Tree Journal Page

Here's a journal page I made using a picture from a magazine ad that I had been saving for awhile until I came up with an idea because I love the tree.
I painted the background with acrylic. I tore the picture from the magazine page so it would have the rough edges, then tore a strip of scrapbook paper and glued that all down with gel medium. There were a couple people sitting on the beach. Since I was going for "nature" and since I hardly ever include people in my art (not sure why) I covered them up with the ticket my friend Debbie sent me that has blanks for "who, where, when" so I put "me, here, 4ever" (why not dream!). Page still needed something so I painted some copper fleur de lis brads dark gray to match the stripe I had painted on the background and added them.
Thanks for looking!
