Bird cage journal page

Bird in a cage is a loose lined drawing that lends itself to a free and funky journal page.  The style matches a scribble technique and fits well with doodles and line work.

My journal page came together with a gesso base, white acrylic, stencils, and pencil scribbles.  I had sprayed Dylusion inks on patterned papers and incorporated them on the page.  I was so feeling this quote this week so that became a secondary focal point of my page.

I cut the openings on the bird cage with an x-acto knife to allow the background peep through.  Bird in a cage is raised with a silicone adhesive dot to create a shadow on the page.

What a week it has been. But I'm strong enough.  I know it!
