It's a new theme at ART JOURNAL JOURNEY and this month it's 'Journeys' - any kind, physical or spiritual.
My page reflects the fact that I've been gently nudging myself outside of my comfort zone in different areas of my life for a few months. Trying food that previously I would have shunned, expanding my art to include figure drawing and soon, I hope, painting.
The sentiment is a mixture from Tim Holtz 'Stuff to Say' and an unknown alphabet set.
I started by spraying the page with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Gingerbread, then flicking watercolour paint across the page.
To this I added the stencilled butterflies using Distress Ink in Broken China. Each butterfly, deliberately paler to suggest a journey through time. The pearl drops adding to the movement of the butterflies.
