Art journaling and an inspirational Tag

Hi there my gorgeous friends .
how are you all today.
Welcome to my blog 
I have an art journal page and a Tag to share with you today .


Dusty Attic materials used 
Art Journal Page - An Adventurous life 
Crackle Paint /DA 0900
Dusty in Colour /Navajo White  DA 0903
Dusty in colour /Capri DA0915
Jumbo Cogs 10 Pk /DA 0232
Heart Arrow #2 /DA1026
Mini Heart Buttons /DA0682
Ornate corner #13/  DA 1137
Mini chicken wire /DA 0788

does not necessarily mean
Climbing mountains
Swimming with sharks
Or jumping off cliffs.
it means risking yourself, 
by leaving a little piece of you behind
in all those you meet along the way .

as many of you know I adore creating tags .
Below is a tag I created with rustic orange and blue/green 
I used Dusty in Colour /Capri which is the perfect contrast 
for the rusty orange . 
I also added some tiny splashes of white which lightens the blue .
this creates contrast and dimension.
