i really do want to be fearless. i want to live life with reckless abandoment and full of passion. i want to take chances even if i am afraid. i want to be genuine, caring, grateful, and love with my heart wide open. These are things poured into my journals and written on my heart.
A couple months ago i created a big stash of Gelli Print papers. i love using them in my art journal and that "heartstrings" print was begging to be used on this page. i love using things that really enforce my story.
i almost always start my pages with gesso and this page is no exception. i grabbed my bag of leftover goodies.
- deli gelli prints
- punched leftovers
- music paper leftovers
- map pages
- black & white photos
- painted line leftovers
i collaged some of the pieces around the page using gel medium. i painted some around the page and added more collage layers. i love this slow build up of layers and really enjoy the process. Paint. Collage Layers. Paint. Collage Layers. And finally, titles, journaling, and doodles. There is something magical about it coming all together.
