Spread your wings - art journal page

I created this page for a "Let's Celebrate International Scrapbooking Day" challenge over at Finnabair's blog. We were to take a quote that is close to our heart, and create a piece of art inspired by it.

As you might know, my art is full of inspirational quotes - I like to put quotes on almost everything I make.

I started by drawing shapes into texture paste I'd scraped on a piece of cardstock. 

I added more texture using various other pastes I have in my stash - crackle, bead... you name it, I got it... Next, I started adding inks - Lindy's Stamp Gang first...

... then some Daler-Rowney acrylic inks until I was satisfied with the colour.

I really like the colours and the texture!
