writings {art journal pages}

this two page spread started literally with some excess spray ink dabbed off onto this paper and me setting the collage paper with purple on top of it. when i went to the studio and looked at the potential....the fingers starting grabbing and working the paint and the page came to life.

i added the numbered tape and other collage paper; but, the some of the collage got buried in the layers of work.

the collage paper with the 2 ways....was perfect though. i had pulled that from a fashion magazine and worked it in. perfect in the fact that i liked the words peeking through, and serves as a reminder that there is always another way to do almost anything. my way is only my way.....and there is, and always will be, another way.

yesterday was a bit of a trying day so it felt so good to turn the music up and let the creative space work some magic.

i had said that i was working this as a two page spread so i pulled that purple spray ink across onto the other page. no collage paper this time- dabbed my stencil directly onto my paper.

love the colors and the scribbles on these pages. it felt so good to get the days events off my chest and onto paper. the main story was written in pencil and buried in the work; but, the other scribbles were oil pastels and watercolor crayon.
