Art Journal #3

This page,like the others really just evolved. I dragged tumbled glass distress ink and bundelled sage distress ink across the paper to create a background. I then stamped one of our new large stamps on the right side using silver colorbox ink. The silver flower image on the left is made using a design adhesive and holographic metallic foil. this one evolved around the words: 'There are no Ordinary Moments" I wanted to make it a bit Etherial.

Now with this page, I wanted to use the swirl flower type technique and then thought, it's a bit out there! I then thought of the them of daring to dream and be a little different, hence the use of some unusual colours. Obviously the wings represent the desire to fly and achieve all that you set your heart on. I love layering papers and often enjoy putting some colours together that I wouldn't have thought of but that would make some ideal backgrounds.
Now I know the Art Journal is taking over this blog just a little, but when you look at the pages, there may be something in them that you like. Take that little thing and use it in your next creation.
I hope you have a creative week- mine will be!
Take care
