Mixed Media Journal Page 2-18-13 Learning to Heal

So this is a page from my heart....  I did the beginning of the page when my husband and I separated...  I just wrote out how I was feeling - was very angry, hurt, upset...

These last few weeks we have both been trying hard to fix things... so Monday night I actually felt moved to change the page...

This was just using Gesso on the page, then using a few stencils and Dylusions Sprays
Alot of dripage
And then writing these words with India Ink

I then took some acrylic paint and started painting over the page...  Of course realizing very quickly how deep India Ink is going to stay on the page.

So I pulled out the Chicken Wire Crafter's Workshop stencil - and Pan Pastels - and started having some fun.

I then pulled out another stencil by Crafter's Workshop Aspen Trees
And used 3 different colors of Pan Pastels
I also just used a few Tattered Angels - Glimmer Screen Winter Trees and used the black Dylusion Sprays

Pulled out the book and scissor and cut some shapes - and then used Modge Podge and glued them down.

Then painted some blue acrylic tape down and used a paper towel to pull some of the paint off.

Taking out my black market and highlighting those pieces - and then using my bubble wrap with white acrylic paint -and I really loved how it started looking at this point.

Then I took out my stencil by Dyan Reaveley's 9x12 Chequered Dots

Outlined the board in black Pitt Bold Markers - and then went over it in Black paint.

And used the alphabet stencil and wrote out 
Learning to Heal

And then used my white pen to outline it so it stands out.

This was something that really came from the heart...
I hope you like it...
And please comment and share..
