Even after all this time, I’m still in love with paint over collage.
I used a quote from Buddha that I’ve used before. It just seemed to resonate within me at the time. It still does with so many things up in the air. I have so many projects going on I’m not sure which way is up. I needed a reminder to find the peace within me and from there peace will emanate outwards.
I had a good time adding the white acrylic aura to the portrait. It’s something new I tried. It seemed to be the right thing to do since I had added white to the quote.
After watching a Tim Holtz video, I layered some stencils in the background. He never ceases to inspire me.
I learned a lot doing this art journal spread and I had a great time doing it. I’m also really happy with the way it came out. I’ll be using some of these techniques again in the future for sure!
