Stop and smell the roses

Art journal page today.  This page is one of two that I decided as I was cleaning my craft room, which seems to be a continuous process.  Takes forever, as I keep coming across bits an dpieces that say "Keep me", use me".  As I ponder what to do and then try and sort out what to put back in a box (probably for another year or two), I had an idea. 

I opened up one of my Art Journals to a page which already had a little paint smeared onto it.  Any time I use paint , ink, stencil paste etc, I always use it randomly on a page.  I use baking paper for a palette, when finished I spread it over the paper, fold paper whatever, and then use that paper as well.

So, getting back to cleaning my room, every time I picked up something small, I placed it on the open journal and glued it into position, which also meant I was doing somethings back to front, but the whole process seemed to work in the end.  I just kept adding until I was OK with the page, then did some journalling.

The image that I started this page with is "Sunflower Dreams" from Digi Doodles.  I had decided to colour her red and green for a Christmas project I had in mind, but instead popped her onto the page together with a host of different techniques, and products.  Stencilling, painting, paper napkin, diecuts, copics, pencils, black marker and my faithful white gel pen.
