Take Time

Hi beautiful readers,

hope you're all doin' great. Here's my second page for my journal book ....
Sometimes you bought too much chipboards, and didn't know what to do with them at the end. Or sometimes you just crazy about chipboards and started collecting them instead of using them. If you're the second person which is me, I started using 'em in one of my journal page.
First thing first come to mix media. Make your page ready with some gesso, incase you're using a very bad papers that are not good dealing with waters, I suggested that you using a few layers of gesso. But that's only an option... you could do it any other way you like....

Then I drew a thin line, for guiding me where I would like all the chipboards to be placed. After I glued all my chipboards, and happy with it, I then did more gesso to cover everything white.
Once I satisfied with the placement, I started spraying it. Choose all colors you like, I chose to use Dylusions Ink Spray: Bubble Gum, Vibrant Turquoise, Dirty Martini and Funky Fuchsia.
Like the first page of my journal, I used the hot gun in every color I sprayed so the colors don't mix with each other. At the very end, I used Archival Ink to create some shadows on the chipboards and I colored it with 8B pencils to make the colors more dramatic.
The quote said "Take time to do what makes your soul happy" to match my background journal.

Would like to join this page for The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge with the moodboard below
I got inspired through the color from the flowers and the background.
Thank you The Mixed Media for the challenge.

Thank you all for your visit and I really hope you'll get inspired with my page.
