Do you have days when you just want to play? Well I had such a feeling last week, so I opened up my old book that I am creating freely in as part of Brenda (Bumblebees and Butterflies) Visual Journal Blog party.
All intentions were to not think too much and just paint and sketch...not that I am great at sketching, but I was willing myself to go wherever.
This is my spread......I really did zone out on this one, and I enjoyed myself immensely.
It is not perfect, but it is not meant to be, this is the whole point of the exercise.
It is all about ME!
My substrate has Gesso, paint, inks, crayons, mediums, glazes, crackle and stamps.
The word ME was inked with distress pens then Glossy accents applied.
The top Heart has a piece of stamped tissue paper, mod-podged on top of the substrate.
The word MYSELF was treated the same way with the Distress pens and placed on the flap, where I also attached a label with the date.
the eye is from Graphic 45....love this bit of design, thinking I am very clever here!!!!
The stamped flowers is a JOFY stamp.
My centre flap is a page cut in half.
and where you find my inspirational words.
And there you have it, a little more work than what was initially intended but I just went with it.

Have a good Day
