Tell the Truth

The prompt on Joggles Art Journal Adventures this week was: Hand. As luck would have it I already had a stencilled hand to hand so to speak, probably done as a try-out for a previous project. It uses L231 Tangled Tribal Hand Large stencil by Stencilgirl Products.  It became the focal point for this spread in an 6 x 8" art journal.
The background was done by first collaging on the pages with 7Gypsies tissue wrap, wrapping paper, vintage imagery and text as well as deli paper stencilled with the smallest stencil from the March 2017 Stencilgirl Club.
On top of that I used Distress Crayons as well as fluid acrylics with the L491 Organic Roots Large stencil, also from Stencilgirl Products.  The quotation was cut from a magazine some time ago, simply because I liked the words. I have a whole collection of such cuttings to use if and when they are appropriate. This one fitted the bill for this spread perfectly.
Here are a few detailed pictures on which you can see the various layers even better than on the relatively small pages.

I love the bright red of your focal point against the muted background of teals/blues. Very striking...
