Yikes, April got away from me, didn't it? lol Well, April is not my favorite month quite frankly so I tend to just ignore it all together. lol Ah well....here's an art journal page I FINALLY finished...and it only took me two months! LOL
So okay...I had decided to use this picture of Lucy (one of my Blythe dolls) "stepping" in the rain. I started out with one of my previous inked up backgrounds and a "rain" type scene but used the color scheme of her dress vs typical rainy day colors. I used some Dylusions ink sprays, white acrylic paint and Art Anthology dimensional paint on UmWowStudio chipboard cloud confetti.
Everything was going well but I just couldn't get it to come together. (Although washi tape from Gauche Alchemy helped, I love putting different patterns together!) So I did what I always do: walk away, come back and do a bit, walk away. Except that I did a lot more walking away than coming back this time. LOL
I added a little pattern with a Dylusions stencil and chalk ink. I found this scrap piece of ephemera with "best voice forward" on it. Lucy's got her foot forward so I thought...WORD PLAY! Ha! But honestly, I think I was so tired looking at this page that I just said, "Screw it" and started gluing everything down. Sometimes you just have to let it go...it'll all work out in the end. :)
Have a great day! <3
