Kierkegaard

My inspiration for today’s art journal page is a quote from Soren Kierkegaard. I glued a couple of pages together in my Moleskine notebook and then painted the pages with Tim Holtz’s Distress Paints in Twisted Citron, Crushed Olive, and Lucky Clover.

Next, I used a Crafter’s Workshop stencil with Lucky Clover to create some interest in the background, and then mixed some of the paint with texture paste and pushed it through the stencil with a palette knife to create even more texture.

A simple border was created with a black Sharpie marker. Then, the background sat there for days while I figured out what I wanted to do with it.

Then, today I came across the Kierkegaard quote and it all gelled for me!

I typed the quote into Word, printed it on my ink jet printer, and cut it apart to fit the page. I used a Tim Holtz Stamper’s Anonymous rubber stamp to stamp the English gentleman figure.

And voilà!

Live forward!
