Perfect vs. Great – Art Journal

Perfect is the enemy of Great  …something to keep in mind when you are struggling to get something just right. Maybe it doesn’t need to be perfect…

My background was a bit of a struggle on this one. I had added leftover acrylic paint from another project to my art journal since I do not like wasting paint and in the process the background just became a bit wild and dull. In order to push the background back – well where it belongs :) I then  added my Art Deco Summit stencil and that began to bring it together. Next I stamped one of my Mini Motifs stamps with the white side of a Moonlight Duo pad – it fits nicely in the stencil pattern – and then one of my Fan-Fare stamps. I finished off the pattern with some new Posca markers I am loving – you can see the link for those below.

It’s a pretty wild background! I added gesso in the quote area and finished it off with a signo and fude pen.

Here are some of the supplies I used:
