Struggle & Hardship, Ambition & Determination are all words that most people can identify with. We’ve all got stories of how hard life can be sometimes, we all struggle with work, finances, commitments and other life distractions. I wanted to create a page that reflected some of the hardships that I’ve gone through in my life. I’ve gone hungry through lack of money. I’ve struggled with low paid work and barely been able to make ends meet, but I’m not alone. We all battle through and we all have a hope that someday it’ll be better, easier and if you’re lucky all the hard work, hopes and dreams you have for the future may…just may…come true.
This page is in my 10×10 art journal and I’ve used a collage sheet which is available on my Etsy store. I’ve kept the colour scheme to a minimum of browns and blacks to reflect the sepia tones of the collage art work. I really enjoyed putting this page together and I hope you enjoy watching the page come to life!
