Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

What did the Angel say?

Thank you everybody who left kind and encouraging comments on my last few posts about the 'book'

Here is the next chapter. I am always inspired by Paula aka Journal Artista, and this is a fab technique that she has YouTubed 
Using Gesso and Colourwash  which gives a ghosting effect, I have used it before using a black background like Paula does in her video, that is where is comes into its own, the effect I have here is different but I like it all the same.

I am always looking for different ways to add text to my journals but often go back to using random letters cut from Newspapers and Magazines

The great thing about jouranlling and such like is that you can spend as little or as much time on it as you like, its your work and there are no rules - most of my pages take a day or two but I only do a few minutes at a time and keep coming back to it, or sometimes a whole page takes hours or just a few minutes - its how you feel at the time and how much time you have. No excuse not to do Art!

Thank you for looking - if you are new here you can catch up on the whole book by clicking on the tab at the top of my blog
