never too busy

Sweet friends,
What defines Bohemian?. I thought I'd create a spread on the very definition of it :). Found them on Thesaurus. I also added a sweet quote from Djuna Barnes. I like to be in this dreamy, creative state of mind :).

For the background, I chose contrasting blue, pink and gold acrylic paint. Splashed and dripped some too.

I don't mind the busy-ness at all :). This is the only time I could use too many buttons, blinkies and tissue paper flowers. 

Ever long list, meaning of the word Bohemian. I'm certain we   all own at least one of them :). 

Bouquet of tissue paper flowers :).

That's it. One of many ways you could add bohemian feel to your journal pages. If you're feeling a little adventurous, you may add small mirrors or shiny gypsy things.

And speaking of mirrors, I'm inviting you to play along with us at LESSology's Mirror Mirror On The Wall Challenge and recycle/upcycle something :). Have a great day!.

P/S: I'm linking up this to Art Journal Everyday :).
