When The Why Is Clear or… In my art journal today


When the why is clear, the how is easy. – unknown

I love this – makes so much sense in so many parts of your life :)


Used Soft Body Acrylic Paints on the background and layered them adding gesso here and there. I also used some paint skins and applied them with Gloss Medium and Varnish – I love how they fuse into the background and yet add texture and visual interest.



Then I just stamped the quote with the wooden alphabet stamps.

Done :)


Have a gorgeous day!
