Art Journal – Count Your Age By Friends …..

Here’s a double page spread from my journal that I did a while back.  I was experimenting with overlaying book paper with paint, paint with stencils and stencils with stamps.  I was determined to keep the colours subtle, not my usual bright and bustling, overloaded and bling filled persona at all!

Finally I stuck some dies on top [the ever so slightly robotic looking lady is a 5 piece puzzle you can stick together however you want and the scrabble squares are also a die] along with one of my favourite John Lennon quotes………

Count your age by friends, not years

Count your life by smiles, not tears

Count Your Age 1

Count 2

Count 3

Count 4

Of course, right at the very end I had to give it a wee burst with some sparkly colour mist …….  just can’t help myself!  🙂

I find that now a bit of time has passed by since I last looked at this page, I quite like it………

Thanks for popping by, as always, it’s lovely to know you’ve been!
