Sometimes a single word transports you to back to a certain time and certain place. Hallelujah is one of those words for me. A picture immediately comes to my mind, a certain place, a certain occasion.. feelings flood in. It is an occasion i enjoy remembering so i wanted to place hallelujah on an art journal page.
Art journalling is often my God time, my quiet pondering moments, time for just me, and I so value it. It recharges me. Thoughtful time is important to my sanity and it helps free me up to move onto the next thing on my list.
The background is a picture of a castle gate from a vintage book, vintage sheet music, a random page from Alice in Wonderland that contains the quote ‘drink me’ and the turquoise butterfly is a free printable. I bought myself a new alphabet stencil as a little holiday treat for myself. I used 2 paint colours dragged onto the page via a piece of thick cardboard instead of a paintbrush. The white dots are stencilled on and the the turquoise effect is made using paint applied by bubble wrap. Hallelujah is outlined with a uniball black gel pen. Phew. The purple, yellow and turquoise is not one of my usual colour combinations, but I am loving the end result.
