... {art journal}

this isn't maybe my usual color combo; but sometimes you need to stretch and push outside of your comfort zone...and not every page needs to be pretty.

who wants an art journal full of cupcakes? life is messy. art journaling should be messy.

i really like the texture and the edges, where other pages colors have seemed through.

i was trying the image transfer again- love the inconsistencies and the color variations.

this corner is more than messy, but, i somehow love this.

the edges full of color from other work. gesso'd variation that lends itself to other colors and possibilities. the brown oil crayon with the pink and gold colors.....

....this is the reality of art journaling. no cupcakes here.
