a few more quotes for my journal

Just a few more pages of quotes to add to my journal. Haven't had much time lately to keep up on everything. So in the meantime...enjoy. thanks for stopping by. 

text box for "success and belief" were cut out of scraps of painted paper sprayed with blick liquid watercolors. Lettering done with black pitt brush pen. Highlights done with white gel pen. Background paper had been painted by scraping acrylic paint around with cardboard...then dot stencils were sponge painted with acrylic paint. Rest of the quote was written directly onto the painted paper using a prismacolor black marker thin tip. "Size" outlined with white gel pen (sakura gel roller).

Pitt Pen brush directly on painted page. White Sakura Gel Roll pen for white grey copic for shadow.

"creativity" cut out of separate painted paper and glued down. Shadow added with black copic brush pen. Highlights added with Bic correction pen. Remaining lettering written directly on the page with black prismacolor marker. Highlight with white gel pen.

Base lines for writing were thin strips cut from scraps of painted paper and glued down All black lettering done with black pitt brush pen. Highlights done with white gel pen. sakura moonlight pens were used to add colored outlines around "future", Believe, Beauty and Dreams". Aqua Souffle pen used to make swirls inside "future".  (sadly not my favorite page....poor quality of picture too...hope to get better at photography too!)
