'Journal writing is a voyage to the interior.'
Let France to take your hand and walk you through her very personal path... Enjoy
A dear friend of me told me once that paper is a very good listener... so telling it your deepest secrets, sadness or anger is not only a safe thing to do, it often brings out the best of your creativity. Isn't that a strange thing? Well, I might put myself in a very vulnerable position, but here goes nothing. I ripped, burned and scratched my feelings into the paper... and this was the result in my art journal.
The texture in the opening is created by laying down a thick layer of heavy white gesso, in which I added scratches during the several stages of drying. Once dried, I colorized it with a mixture of Clear Glaze and Black Orchid Primary Elements. The shading is done with Hunter Grey Primary Elements.
And the rusted element was a gift from another dear friend. She picked it up on the street for me.
I must say that despite what inspired this page, I quite like it. But what I like even more, is the influence of friends that got me to make it as it is... Feeling grateful and blessed :)
