Awaken... a Greatness already Living within You. I found this quote by Guy Finley while surfing the internet and just had to use it in an Art Journal Spread.

I started out with some torn and crumbled book pages that I glued down to my journal for some great texture.

I then painted over the pages with several colors of acrylic glaze. This way the text from the pages still poked through in spots. After the paint was dry I sprayed some Black Marble Dylusions ink through a Dylusions diamond stencil.

I then drew in my tree with a Faber Castell black Pitt pen. Lastly I added the quote with a white Soufle pen.

There is a great challenge going on over at the Frilly and Funkie. It is all about stencils and texture. I thought this piece was perfect to submit to the challenge. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you find the greatness within yourself.
