Be Myself Art Journal Page

 I found this quote from Vincent Van Gogh on Pinterest and felt it works for me.

I adhered Tim Holtz Ideo-Ology Collage Tissue paper to a single page in my art journal using Liquitex Matte Medium. I watered down some Artist's Loft white gesso and painted it in spots letting the printed tissue show thru.

I wanted to add a bit of color to the florals, so I rubbed some ink from old ink pads on them. I sprayed two colors of Distress Oxide Spray between the flowers for a background.

I typed and cut out the quote. I colored (using Copic Markers), cut out and glued a Julie Nutting paper doll, that a friend had gifted me several years ago.

Lastly I adhered the paper bits to the art journal page.
