Collector of Memories

Collector of Memories

Loose journal page
Mixed media using Faber Castel Gel Sticks, acrylic paint, gesso, stamps, tissue paper, etc., on 9×12 water color paper.
The message:
“Everyday moments become cherished memories”
“collector of memories”
“Remember the wonderful parts”
I started this to practice relaxing about “messy looking” backgrounds.
… I made myself stay away from pen outlines.  It was hard, but I’m glad I didn’t give in.  I didn’t like the pencil sketch of her face, but as I painted she changed and now I really like her.
I’m eager to practice some more.
