Altered Journal - Purple Beauty

I've got a little preview of a project that I started on last night.  I really enjoyed making the altered journals for my son's teachers so I thought I'd make some more for my shop over at Homestead.  As you know, I always reach for my blue but I resisted the urge and started with purple this time:

This is what I have so far but as I'm stumped.  I really don't know why purple is so hard for me to work with, lol.  Anyway.......maybe it'll come to me during the day and I can finish this up tonight.
Thank you for the comments you left me on yesterday's post "Bliss - Mixed Media Canvas".  I'm so happy to hear that I've inspired many of you to give mixed media a try.  It really is a lot of fun and there isn't any rules, you're not doing portrait work because its more on the abstract side so anything goes.  Really it's just about expressing whatever you want.  Most of the time when I create something, my color choices are a reflection of the way I'm feeling at the time; so the process becomes very therapeutic for me.  I hardly ever start with a plan and just go with the flow.  I think that's why I enjoy the process so much, I just figure it out as i go :D  So don't be shy, open up those paints and just start playing!  If you have a smile on your face while you're working, then you're doing it right!!  I hope you all have a wonderful day!  Here is a little quote for you to kick off the day:

known it from before the beginning of the universe." ----RUMI
