A Change of Direction...

Sometimes a change of direction is necessary. I began working on this journal page and felt a bit frustrated at how it was progressing. I began with stencils, ink, paint, and collaged papers.  I ended up adding a layer of gesso when I wasn't happy with the direction of the page and then decided to sketch a face. I like the bits of paper peeking through and am glad I wasn't afraid to cover up the layers and keep working. 

Have a  blessed day!

I covered the page with some white paint and began sketching this face with a Stabilo pencil.
