Art Journal Day 3

I enjoy collecting quotes. This one seemed perfect for today. I took a magazine page, scuffed it up with Never Dull, painted on top of that with acrylics. Hmmmm, I covered up all the areas where the Never Dull took away the magazine ink. Why did I do that? Got carried away, as I do. While the paint was still damp, I took pieces of masking tape put it down on the paint and pulled up. Some areas worked in others the paper pulled up. Since this isn't about pretty or perfect, it is what it is. That's what I like about raw art. I wrote with a white correction pen and added a drop shadow with a fine line marker. Next it will get glued into my journal.

your page is really a beautiful background for such an insightful quote...from the colors you chose to the techniques you selected to use...it's difficult not to look at something with a critical eye and wonder why we made the choices we did at the time...i'm trying really hard to do that myself...to realize that journaling is about just letting yourself be free and in the moment...to get carried away!...whatever occurs to you...and in the case of this page the end result is really wonderful...

the spirit sees nothing to criticize...
