Bloom - An Art Journal spread

Hello !

Art journaling is a fun way to visualize your thoughts, and today's spread is an example of that...
We all have experienced bad things in life, some more than others, but despite the uggliness of what life can throw at us, we are able to overcome it and succeed despite the rocks. My journal pages are about that, resilience... Bloom whatever your background is, because the past does not define you. It's a part of you but not the whole picture.

The background is built with a broken glass stamp and black ink, over layers of leftovers of ink and golden brown mica powder. Once dried, I paint it with Cayman Sorbet medium (Art Anthology).

The flowers cluster are created with the Pocket full of posies stamps set by BoBunny, some are directly stamped on the pages, some are stamped on white paper, painted and cut out. They are colored with Barbie and Patience Colorations sprays for the flowers, Timeless for the stems and Cayman Sorbet for the leaves.
The frames were stamped over the background and colored with Faber-Castell pens in Red-Yellow and Blue-Green.
BLOOM is stamped with an Uppercase Alphabet set, and the text with a tiny alphabet set. 

I really enjoy Art Journaling, because it a great way to channel both creativity and thoughts. And I don't need to be twisted and dark, my thoughts can be happy and colorful as well in the same journal, as you can see in my other pages.
