Layers You Will Love - When Not to Stop...

Hello!

Welcome to another week as we journey through the year creating in our art journals.  I am often asked about creating layers and how to know when a page is finished.  That is a hard question to answser but somehow I just know.  For this journal page I worked to a layer that would be nice as it is but I go on to add in more.  It is hard to create the "look" of layers without actualluy creating them.  I often find that it takes several layers before a page starts to really come together. What do you think?

Have ablessed day!
