Today's art journal page is brought to you by A Year in the Life of an Art Journal.  The prompts are given in 3 parts, as usual, and this prompt was:
Prompt: Love
Song:  Not Broken by the Goo Goo Dolls
Technique to try:  Silhouettes

So, I usually try to get all 3 things into my page.  Because it is more challenging that way.  But this page seemed to have a mind of it's own. I got my supplies together, paint, tissue paper, silhouette, gel medium, markers, tape.  And began my process.  I painted the page red, used gel medium in my paint to help my tissue paper to adhere, added my silhouette to the left side.  I used water color crayons all along the page, and smeared them with water.  I was going write the words from the song on top of this, but other words came out of my pen.  All things about love.  And once they started, they wouldn't be stopped!  So, I added more crayon, to not make the words as noticeable.  And wrote the fancy "LOVE" on top.  I really liked making this page, and I really like the way it came out too!!

I hope you like it too!!
Until next time....
