in pieces

About time I completed a journal page, wouldn't you say?  I've been making backgrounds and gathering "stuff" but not doing alot of finishing lately.  I just like making art, sometimes it doesn't even matter to me if I finish it!  But then, I need to close out an idea so I can move on at some point.  Of course, that doesn't mean I won't ever go back and add more...who knows!
This page is gessoed then painted with acrylics, with some 91% alcohol spilled on it for interest.  Then some scraps cut up from an old calendar picture that I used for a book liner.  I glued them down then softened edges with pigment ink pads.  Haphazardly stamped a few images, again with pigment ink.  Drew a few swirls with colored pencil.  Cut the shanks off a couple flower shaped buttons and glued them down along with a metal embossed pewter or silver flower sticker I had colored with lilac pigment ink.  Then wrote the words with a Sharpie water based white paint marker.
I'm really liking the color combinations.  Probably what drew me to use that calendar page in the first place.
Thanks for taking a look!
