I realized that I have been a wanderer all along. It took me years to finally know what I really want to do in life. And now I take every opportunity to surround myself with things (and people) that (or who) bring happiness.
And today's spread is all about our wanderings and soul searching that everyone of us has experienced or still ongoing within.
Yes, I do enjoy orange now :).
I am trying not to use watered-down paint anymore, since I'd ruined some of the older pages in this journal. They simply became mushy at the middle and torn away :(. I had prepared my page by spraying blue and orange glimmer mist over stencil a few days ahead. All I need now is just to adhere orange colored tissue papers all over the stencil pattern!. Covered the entire page with tissue papers.
Then I adhered pattern paper cutouts of a window, a bicycle and a door to the page. Dabbed some aqua acrylic paint over a stencil along the outline of the door and top of page. I wiped off some of the aqua paint with baby wipes. I love how the paint and parts of the tissue paper washed out a little bit. Like a real wall with paint chips and graffiti.
I doodled with black india ink in lazy wavy lines. I think the white dotted line underneath helped guide the eyes across the page. Outlined along the door and window with black india ink too.
I had fun making this today. So calming. And I like to leave you a beautiful quote by Henry Ward Beecher;
" Every ARTIST dips her brushes in her own SOUL".
Until next, happy journaling.
