"Falling Apart"

I started this page off with a stencil experiment that went awry and wondered what the heck am I going to do with this. I'm always kind of anxious when I do a page, is it perfect? it is good enough? does it have meaning? (what is that anyway?) so to start off on a page that I already deemed ruined I didn't have any inhibitions or worries about what I put on it. I felt very free. I used the scraps and offcuts on my desk and just stuck them down. From there added my favourite textures, covered up more mistakes and kept going with the crackle paint and spritzing until I was happy. This has to be one of my favourite pages. Lesson learnt:  LET GO!!!!

Art Journal - 'Intensity'

I had a lot of fun playing with this technique, dripping ink and watching it blend and move!
