“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.” I love this quote, and had to find a way to include it in my art journal!
I applied a light coat of cream-coloured acrylic paint to the background, and then added teal-coloured circles using acrylic paint applied with large bubble wrap. I tinted the quote words using Distress ink applied with a blending tool, and collaged the words onto the background. Next, I sponged black acrylic paint through punchinella (sequin waste) here and there to add more texture. I applied a double strip of washi tape across the bottom of the page (it’s straight in the art journal, but shows up crooked in this photo). To make the words stand out, I shaded around them with a gray pen followed by doodles and scribbles with a black pen. Last but not least, I randomly adhered dimensional raindrop shapes to the page.
Don’t wait for the storm to pass; dance in the rain!
