Art Joural Journey August “Frida Kahlo” Challenge

today I am sharing what was actually the ‘first’ piece I created for the AJJ Frida challenge

Magpie's Nest Wings to Fly loose leaf journal page (1)

I just wasn’t thrilled with it so I kept putting it aside and creating something else

I hauled out a lot of ingredients for this a little larger than a postcard size journal page…

the last thing I added was some of the blue Woody Stabilo hitting it with a wet brush and letting it drip a bit…

  6. This is stunning. I think you used every element in your arsenal on this one, because there are so many layers and so much detail. This is not a page you can briefly view, then go onto the next. This is one that must be studied and savored. It is beautiful.
