Life is a balance {Scrap Around The World}

Life is a balance of holding on and letting go…. – this quote is so very true to me! I decided to make it a focal point of my project. Below you can see art-journal pages created for January 2015 challenge at Scrap Around The World.

I have used Finnabair art-journal as a base – I love this journal because it has sturdy pages and enough place to create dimensional pages – not only flat ones. I worked with gesso, acrylic paints, gelatos, black pen, white Sharpie, white chalk ink, Silks, 7 Dots Studio stamps, UmWowStudio stencil, 7 Dots Studio papers (Illumination) and Prima paper.
Some close-ups:

Here is gorgeous January moodboard created by Karita Vainio. You can see Reveal One here and Reveal Two here.

I encourage you to play with this challenge – take a look at prizes you can win!
