It's been a while since I posted any pages from my Life Book.. mainly, because I've fallen behind but continue to work on at my own speed.. life is rather turbulant at the moment to say the least..thank you to everyone for their kind wishes on my last blog post..xx
Week 8 of Life Book sees us celebrating positve choices through layering with Mystele.. I don't know about positive choices.. I am working on that!
Mystele is a wonderful teacher and has certainly given me some inspiration for positive healing.. life is scarey at times isn't it..
So here was my first layer.. for me... getting it all out! (sorry about the fuzzing!!)
Time for more layers.. Neo-colours, gesso, and spray paints through a stencil..
By this time I forgot to take any more pics.. I was busy looking for paper scraps!
I painted over my paper scraps with acrylic paints and used my fingers getting lovely and messy and lost in the process!
Time for even more fun.. looking for shapes that jump out.. 'pulling' art..
I actully turned my page upside down.. I could see the shape of a figure.. and a patch of paper (which was top left, turned into a vase, bottom right!)
upside down page!
It was now I realised I had forgotten to take photos.. I sketched out my shapes using a pencil.. it was fantastic just to get lost in the process.. art journaling is great for the soul ♥♥♥
Here's my finished page
She is total whimsey and random!
It was a learning curve for me to accept.. I nearly painted over her!
Mystele encouraged us to add stamping and ephemera..
The flower was nabbed from an old card!
I used my favourite stamped called
Journey Collage available from Stampotique Originals
..it is all about the journey to me..
Many thanks for calling and leaving a comment if you get the chance,
embrace your layers.. good and bad..xx
