shattered pieces

I've got some new things to share with you all. I'm going to start off with a page in my art journal that I started quite a while ago, but never finished. I have finished it now and I like it. It's a look back at a period of time in my life. In retrospect, it is easier to see what has happened.

For this page I sprayed some Tattered Angels mist for the base. I also used a chevron mask by Mister Huey's. I put some gesso on a foam dragonfly stamp and stamped it twice. To give it more definition I ripped some dictionary paper to fit the shape of the outer line of the dragonflies. In between the dragonflies I stamped a quote I saw on Pinterest which expresses my feelings.
I cut a heart out of some cardstock and then cut it into pieces, matching the quote. Then, I painted it metallic pink. I used that same paint to give some definition to the edges of the page as well. After the heart had dried, I put a thick layer of distress crackle paint on i. Then I reassembled it and glued it on together with some other pieces.

I'll be back this week to show you more! Have a good week and if you're having a few days/weeks off, just like me: Enjoy!
