Learn... Me... Explore Journey... Believe... Life is About Creating Yourself...

Abstract elemental art, clean aqua teal colours... One of the shabby-grungy look I've created as a design team member for The Technique Twist challenge, using a sketch and a mood board from Once Upon a Sketch and Scrap Around the World as an inspiration...


Mood board from Scrap Around the World..
Something inspirational... Something about life... About creation... About life journey... Exploration and believing... I love the sea... The breezes... And fresh air... I wanted a layout that depicts about my life, from all the life lessons I've learned - big and small... To get a shabby grunge look, I used quite a number of Ingvild Bolme's Junkyard Findings water pipes, frames, typo bulbs and various chalk inks and mediums for this mix media project; all inspired from the various elements and colours from the mood board... So here is the final look....



I actually used a mini altered terracotta pot here...
My hand-written journaling "Embrace the greatest
Lessons given, grow and make a difference..."
I'm using part of the elements from the Periodic table,
which are the basic elements in Life... 

Here is a list of supplies I've used for this project... Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day ahead...

  1. What a stunning page about the lessons you've learned on your life journey!! I love your beachy mixed media background and your altered flower pot is just so creative and lovely!! I also adore your personal journaling in your own hand framed by the metal pieces, words, and phrases - how clever!! Thanks for joining us for the January Once Upon A…Sketch Challenge! I hope you’ll stop by our Once Upon A…Sketch Facebook Page to share your layout there for a chance to win our Facebook prize. ~ Blessings, Tracey
