Opposites was the prompt for Joggles Art Journal Adventures this week and once again my notebook with favourite quotations came up trumps with a quotation by Alexander Sutherland Neill that reads: "Love and hate are not opposites. The opposite of love is indifference". This rings so true with me.
The rather riotous background was done with a wide variety of paints (including some fluorescent ones) and stencil S451 Woven Small by Stencilgirl. I also added rubber stamping with a stamp designed by Tim Holtz as well as stamps from the Marks stamp set designed by Nathalie Kalbach.  Collage was the next step with tissue paper in the same design as Tim Holtz's stamp as well as imagery from a magazine. The LOVE sign (we saw one of them during our New York visit) was also added.
The imagery was outlined with a black Stabilo All pencil as was the text that was printed out on my computer.
The background is a bit wild but within it are hidden nuggets of great colour and texture, that make me happy.
