Breakthrough!

Not much to say, just some pretty art. I'm feeling a little sensitive this week.
But I'm really happy with the Loosy Goosy look to these two pages. Thank you Martha for making me stick with it.
Such a departure from the first page I posted on Tuesday about trying something new.
My breakthrough -- it's all in the supplies you use. The first page was strictly with a sharpie and acrylic paint. This page is watercolor, acrylic paint, india ink, sharpie, watered down paint -- splatters of paint.
The complete journaling says: breakthrough your blocks. change your view. be happy.

What I'm also thinking: stick with it. don't get discouraged -- no matter what anyone says -- or doesn't say about what you do. Be true to your art, yourself -- and forget about the silent ones because you don't need their approval anyway. THEY may talk a good game about art -- but THEY aren't true to the words they speak or write.

Thanks for stopping by -- have a LOVELY day!
