I have to smile at the newest post of Art Journal Cafe today :). I have LOTS of PAGES needed saving! lol. The challenge inspires me to try save one spread I'm not the least happy with.
Ouch. I do not like it.
With one intention in mind, I gave some happy thoughts and started to work. In about 2 hours, they became these;
I sponged all over some pink acrylic paint, stenciled patterns with aqua acrylic paint and then stamped large circles with various sizes of can lids. Then I wrote beautiful teachings from the internet with a little paint brush dipped in black india ink.
It is ALL about LOVE. Have you heard that, the scientists were able to determine the force holding all galaxies, stars, planets which we called 'gravity' is in truth; is COMPASSION??. But of course, the Tibetan monks knew this thousands of years before :).
Love the woven texture from the underlying scrap paper. I let part of the older mossy background shown through the new coats of paint. Simply because I LOVE Donna Downey's velvet iron-on words so much!.
That's it. One journal spread is saved. Ten more to go?. With this, I leave you another beautiful thoughts;
LOVE is the answer of all sufferings.
Never cease to LOVE one another.
