More Work In My New Journal

On this page in the new journal I saw the image of a baby and took to the idea of birthing something new.  I have some ideas for new things for the new year so I see myself peculating these ideas.  All th imagery I created I relate to seed or seedpods, kernels of ideas to let grow.  I am quite happy how this page turned out. I need to remember to take the before pics next time.

I was very frustrated with my writing so I started this black page with writing, my complaint to the universe.  I added gesso and spray ink on top. Then I wrote again, this time more empowering words, covered those with distress stains and then lots of oil pastel.  Then I pulled out a stencil and painted the black lines.  

I tried writing with gel pen and none of my pens would work over the paint. I ended up using a script liner brush and white paint to do the swirls.

Next I decided to try writing in the colored areas.  None of the black markers worked either.  I painted over it with medium to seal the oil pastel but that did not work either.  At last resort I chose a dip pen and India Ink. The only thing that seemed to work.  Finally.
