Quiet Art Space

The joy of independent study is I can take what I learn and go in any creative direction I choose without fear of making a mistake.  For this journal spilling lesson I made a drawing game doodle page mostly following lesson instructions and a page expressing a place I would like to be which I went completely in my own direction creating.  And yes I realized after scanning that Breathe has an E at the end I fixed my page but didn't bother to rescan.  Go right hemisphere!

Here are step by step instructions on how I created my Quiet Space page.  Last night I hunted through the craft papers stash and chose colors and patterns that mimic how I feel when I am in my favorite place.  I ripped every piece of paper as I found it, ripping paper is great therapy.  When I felt satisfied that I had piled my way into a happy place I flipped around the paper stack shuffling them into a good assortment.  Like a kid playing with leaves.  I sprayed the journal page with photo spray adhesive and laid out the papers.  Mod Podged the whole thing and went to bed.  Tonight I returned and trimmed the paper edges added words that apply to the space and some doodle decorations.  Done and fun.
