6 People Present

The prompt on Joggles Art Journal Adventures this week was to use the number 6. I found a quotation I liked very much. It's by William James and it reads: "Whenever two people meet, there are really six people present. There is each man as he sees himself, each man as the other person sees him, and each man as he really is". Definitely something to remember when meeting other people.
The background started with collage, using magazine images and wrapping paper. Over them and on the uncollaged areas I used Distress Crayons and paints which were then removed with a baby wipe through stencil L608 Soulful Scribbles by Stencilgirl. I also dribbled fluorescent paint and ink down the pages till I was happy with how the spread was looking.
For the two people meeting I used the two ambassadors from Hans Holbein the Younger's painting. They felt appropriate for the quote as they both look rather full of themselves.
The quotation itself was stamped unto vintage looking scrapbook paper with a variety of alphabet stamp sets. Then some doodling and outlining was added with both black and white markers.

I worked in the 9 x 9" Bee Paper Mixed Media journal, which is ring bound as you can see on the above picture. Despite that I like this journal very much, mainly due to the great quality paper.
