Inspiration exists

Week 2 2017 brought the prompt: Discipline for Colour Me Positive 2017 and it afforded me the opportunity to use one of my favourite art quotation by Pablo Picasso: "Inspiration exists but it has to find you working". 
It also provided a chance to incorporate his painting Les Demoiselles d:Avignon  (1907) on my art journal page (I'm working in the A4 Dylusions art journal). It remains astonishing to me that I saw this for myself last year in the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.  I also added an image from a sketch Picasso did showing the artist and his model.
For the background and almost all the stencilling I used the L185 Unfinished stencil designed by Seth Apter for Stencilgirl Products.  It is amazingly versatile and filled to the brim with different patterns as well as words. It was augmented by words from Donna Downey's stencil  068 I am an Artist.
 The words of the quotation were stamped on using the new alphabet stamp set designed by Everything Art for PaperArtsy. They were outlined with a white marker.

This is so beautiful. There is so much detail floating between all those layers.
