It began, as most of my pages do, with a painted background using my Neocolour II crayons. You'll appreciate that this basic page is nothing fancy, but you see it doesn't have to be, since I will cover much of it up anyway. Some people new to art journalling can get in a bit of a panic over producing "arty" backgrounds, but they can be very simple because they're just a jumping off point!
I do LIKE to keep reasonably active and occupied, just not quite THIS busy .......!! Anyway, here's a challenge for you - make and share your pages on the complications of life and I'll put them up here.
