Journal page

Thought it was about time I shared some art as it seems ages since I have! I've just launched a self portrait journal out into the world and this is my effort in it:



I printed the image on glossy photo paper and then altered it using bleach, scratching with a pin, sanding, crayon over rubbing plate, pens and an embellishment.

An intriguing portrait, Maz!!! Makes me more determined to meet you some day, lol!!! Though after you see my effort (whatever it ends up like!) you'll probably keep your distance ;0

LOL It may not make sense to others (even those who have met me!) since I've undergone something in the life changing department recently! ;oD And I'm sure I'll love whatever you do, have faith in your artistic abilities, my friend!

This is fantastic. I love the way you've combined the words with the image, and so meaningfully too.

Aww, thanks, guys. ;o)

very brave - it reminds me of someone who wrote down words about themself onto edible paper and shouted each word out and ate it in a public place.

Looking forward to seeing what's next....
