Wings of Change

This week's prompt on Joggles Art Journal Adventures was: create a page with an initial text layer. I used my new Inkredible pen from Jane Davenport (permanent when dry) for the writing. You can see some of the words still peeking through here and there. The text I spontaneously wrote was the starting point for the theme of the pages that were done in my Peacock art journal measuring 6x8".
The next layere consisted of stencilling using stencil L471 Hamburg, designed by Nathalie Kalback for Stencilgirl Products, with Distress Paints. I added rubber stamping, using the Marks stamp set,  also designed by Nathalie Kalbach. The other stamps I used of the spirals and the geometric shapes have been in my position for years and I have no idea any more where they were acquired.
I collaged on pieces of Tim Holtz's Postale tissue wrap, as well as the Irish postage stamp and the large bird. I collect imagery from here, there and everywhere (a great excuse to indulge in magazines) and have them in a big box. I try and write on the back where I cut them out from but sometimes forget to note this down before gluing them down, as was the case with this bird. All I can tell you is that it originated in the Country Living magazine, October 2016.
 The Wings of Change words came from a magazine too. 
The circles were stamped on from a lid and surrounded with water soluble oil pastels, and I did some outlining with a black Stabilo All pencil as well as a white marker.
