Art Journal Week 18

This is the page in my art journal for week 18.

I have followed the prompt on Colour Me Positive (CMP),
which was about Healing, with an additional prompt to include a heart.

Following on from last week's thoughts on friendship,
this week I discovered this quote from Susan Tolles.

"You should be your own best friend,
so treat yourself with kindness and unconditional love.
No harsh words or criticism!
Buy special gifts for yourself,
think positive thoughts and know that,
if you fully love yourself,
you can better express love to others."

Also on this page is my Artist Trading Card (ATC)
for The Craft Barn Alpha Challenge. You can read more about it here.

To create the background, I first coated the page in white gesso,
then added layers of acrylic paint (using Black, White & Aged Silver)
& finally a little sprinkle of Perfect Pearls (Pewter) from Ranger.

Here are pages from Week 17 & 18 side by side.

The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed a few revisions to the page for Week 17.
