Life Happens in Real Time



It's too true, huh?  Life happens whether you are ready for it or not!  Might as well be ready!

Here's a journal spread I did using watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons, and Inktense pencils, along with Gesso and acrylic paints.  I used all those mediums for the background - many layers in the style of my friend Journal Artista.  The designs on the background are gesso and craft acrylics (the green is all craft acrylics) - freehand and used bottle tops for the circles.  I collaged and sanded a clock I cut out of a magazine on the "in real time" page.  The words are all adhered to corrugated paper I tore the top layer off before painting with gesso.  LIFE and REAL were stamped with gesso and acrylic paint.  HAPPENS and IN are adhered to scraps of coffee to go sleeves painted with gesso.  And those words and TIME are all letters cut out on a die cutting machine.
I think that covers it!
Hope you enjoy!
Remember - your LIFE is happening right now!  Celebrate it!!!
