Believe - Art Journal

Good Monday Morning to you all!  This morning I'm sharing an art journal page that I finished up last night:


Sorry the isn't that great, I'm in a bit of a rush this morning because it's my grandson's birthday so there is still lots to do in preparation for this evening's festivities ;D

 This is a background I did at my Donna Downey workshop a few months ago.  I adhered a paper towel to my page for texture then stamped a Donna Downey flower onto tissue paper, fussy cut and applied to the page.

So last night I added the second flower, the butterfly, Donna Downey Unity stamp, did some doodling and added some scraps of paper here and there.

For the inclusion, I painted it to match my page and added this cute little Cosmo Cricket Angel that was in my PWP Jan Mixed Media Kit.  She was actually on a tag but I fussy cut so it would show more of the background.

I added another tissue flower, some more doodling and the rest of the Donna Downey Unity quote.  This came together very fast since my background was already done.  I think I'm enter this in the Simon Say's Challenge for this week.  They want to know what you're best known for so it's anything goes.  That's kinda a hard question though, I think I'm best known for lots of layers, bright colors, lots of texture and details.  I don't know, what do you think?

Alright I better go because I have a lot to do for the birthday boy.  Thank's for joining me and have a beautiful day!!
