I will fly

This is my creation for Week 2 of the Colour Me Positive art journalling challenge:

The prompt is Be Brave, with the additional criteria of a silhouette:

For my project I quoted lyrics from Touch the Sky, from the 2012 Disney movie Brave.

I'm also sharing my page at Mixed Media Monthly:

I created the 'cloudy' background by applying paint with a make up sponge directly onto the cardstock.  No gesso, no other prep - I just jumped in and squished the paint around.  Pretty brave, for me!  I really like the result.  When it was dry, I added the bird using a stencil and black sharpie pen.

The flowers and rhinestones are from my scrapbooking stash, and the words are printed with Dymo tape.

Simon Says Monday has a STENCILLING theme this week too!
