Art Journal page - how far we travel in life...


I just finished this art journal page:  "How far we travel in life matters far less than who we meet along the way."  

This was inspired by a technique I saw Dina Wakley do where you stamp a face on both sides of a piece of white tissue paper so that when you adhere it to your page with matte medium, the faces are looking both directions.  

Products used:
Jane Davenport 376686 face stamp
Verses "Along the way" stamps
Jane Davenport Washi and journal tape
Jane Davenport Power Pastels
Prima Water soluble oil pastels
Acrylic Mat finish paint
Crafters workshop stencil TCW237
White tissue paper
posca pen
black sharpie
