As I’m transitioning between this and my blog on my website, to view the post and video for Day 2 click above!
After trawling through my collage bits and pieces I came across this image of an octopus that I’d never used, so feeling in a whimsical mood I decide to create a page that integrated the image. Of course as the octopus is a nautical image I had to integrate a nautical theme into the rest of my page by using maps in the background and a compass stencil.

It was a fun page to create and I hope you enjoyed the process.
I created this page when I was in the mood for some muted colour tones. I wasn’t in the mind set for lots of bright vibrant colour and detail, so I thought I’d stick to just browns and whites. I’ve wanted to use an image of Michelangelo’s David for quite some time and this page seemed to the the best use for the image.

Looking through my collection of vintage digital images and cabinet cards I came across one that I hadn’t yet used in an art journal project. With a little Adobe Photoshop filter work I managed to alter the image to the one you see above…only without the colour! The art journal page is in my 5×8 Dylusions small art journal which is nearly full!

Having a nice safe comfort zone is lovely, but it’s safe and in that safe place nothing unusual or out of the ordinary ever happens. Comfort is good, but can get a little staid. Being brave enough to step outside can open up a world of new creativity and you can let your imagination run riot.
If it doesn’t work out…what’s the worst that could happen?
In this page I’m using my set of neon and fluorescent paints, which isn’t something I normally use as they are very very bright and really “in yer face”.
As the bearded bloke says..it’s OK to make mistakes, it’s OK to take chances and it’s OK to be brave!
