Mixed Media Circle Journal Layout...

I finished my last circle journal layout! This one is for Peggy, and her theme is "Mixed Media Techniques." Here's what I came up with...
For my technique I chose layers. The layers I used are:

sheet music
gel medium
powder blue acrylic wash
layer of dark blue and green paint, partially rubbed off with baby wipe
gesso splatters
glimmer misted stars and magazine piece
orange glitter stars/gel medium
black oil crayon
stamped images and quote

Quote reads:
"One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a Dancing Star." ~Friedrich Nietzsche

The process took numerous days - had to let each layer dry in between. Tons of fun with this one!

I have absolutely loved the Circle Journal process. I am definitely going to try this again! I can't wait to get together with everyone and exchange our pages! It will great to fill my journal with everyone's self-portraits in song!

Thanks for stopping by and for your comments - they really mean a lot to me! I wish you a terrific Tuesday!

The days of work payed of (do you say that like this?) I mean - it's stunning!!! Clicked it open several times to take a good look... marvelous!!! Stunning!!! (I bought me some heavy gel medium myself last week - played with it in my journal already, soon on my blog - amazing stuf!!! Love it!)

Wonderful. Definitely, it was worth all that work. I am sorry to say, I am not that patient, nor do I have a place to store a work in progress away from touchy fingers, but worse of all, I am the worst culprit. I can't wait between layers. Good for you.
Have fun in TN
