This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Art Journal Page - Life Inspiration

Hello Everyone

I hope that you are having a great weekend.

I finished an art journal page which I really love.
I love how this page came together and I was able to play and create but I also love the sentiment.
Life has been a little tough lately and this page was certainly my "out" and solace.'s my page.

I really wasn't so sure about the background colours and then amazingly it just worked and all came together.  I used gel medium for the stencilling and then distress ink and gelatos and stamping and some washi tape.

I used a few bits and pieces from Graphic 45 and then also from Kaisercraft.
It's was good to use some rather old stash.

Here are some close-ups.

"Create a life that feels good on the inside
Not one that just looks good on the outside".

I hope you have a super Sunday.
