Art Journal Thursday: Fly

There are some things that I don't want anymore. Similar to my recent need to use what I have on hand and weed out the things that I no longer need (i.e., out of focused photos, clothes, art supplies and the like), I decided to look at some emotions that I could do without. I think sometimes we keep thoughts and feelings that used to serve us or came to us legitimately, but have now outlived their usefulness. This page expresses the desire to live out of something else.

I opened my stash of rub-ons to help create texture.

I used a red paint pen to create the "crown" border.

More rub-ons and my handwriting. The letters were rub-ons that I then went back over with a red paint pen.

The background was created using a palette knife, layering on titian buff, black and turquoise acrylic paint.

What things or emotions are you wanting to get rid of in your life?
