if it is meant to be, it will be

My next art journal page has been finished as well. I had a clear image of this one in my mind, so it was finished quite quickly. The only thing slowing me down was the drying time needed for the modeling paste. ;)
The quote I saw on Pinterest and it really inspired me. It's my motto for now. :)

For this page I started smearing modeling paste through a Prima mask. Next, I watered down some acrylic paint and made a heart shaped blot in the middle of the page. I sprayed some water on it to let it spray out.
I stamped some butterflies with Stazon ink and coloured them in with water colour pencils. I glued them on the page and also used some dimensional tape for the big butterfly.
I stamped some random text stamps all of the page to give some more texture to it all. Then, I printed the words and cut them in strips. I drew a line around them to make them pop. I did the same thing to the edge of the page.
Then I still thought something was missing. I've put many things onto the page, but it just didn't complement the page. After a million tries, I grabbed some 'drops'. That was it! I glued them down and felt it was done.
I might transfer this page onto canvas, 'cause I really like it. If I do, I'll show you of course.

I wish you all an inspiring Sunday. And remember: if it's meant to be, it will be. :D
