THE SONG: Butterflies & Hurricanes by Muse

I am the Guest Host for the Art Journal Prompt blog A Year in the Life of an Art Journal and I've chosen the topic of "Time".

Time can be a friend or an enemy.
A source of consolation or anxiety.

Recently I've been just listening to classical music - whether it be an influence of Muse (one of the reasons why their song is on this prompt) or because of the drama and comfort I'm discovering from the great composers, I've been thinking my life can be compared to a symphony of several movements.

I've built this page from sheet music i journaled some ill-feelings on then cut up and glued the parts back together. I covered it with a bit of white Gesso mixed with my new favorite media obsession - Golden Fluid Acrylic then sprayed and dripped some Fluid Acrylic over that. I also mixed in some Golden Course Pumice Gel and Punchinella for more texture. That Punchinella was also used for stamping stencil.

I love grunge. And i feel like my life is starting to really define the beauty of what grunge is... and crescendo ... :)

One Response so far.
