Art journal page - I feel great

"I feel great" - art journal page in Canson Mix Media middle art book - 17 x 25 cm (cca 6.5" x 10")

Just a simple page with a mixed Distress inks and Distress oxides background. I used Salty ocean, Mermaid lagoon and Tumbled glass Distress inks - put them on my craft sheet, sprayed with water and dipped the paper in it. Then I layered Broken china and Faded jeans Distress oxides over it with the same technique. As a final layer I used Hero arts Unicorn white pigment ink stamped with the cloud stamps from Katzelkraft. I wanted more natural sky, so I spritzed the page with water and carefully let the pigments mixed horizontally. The final result was very good :0) Nevertheless I used white acrylic gesso to define the top of the clouds more. I also cut the top parts of the clouds from the paper, so I can place my fish also behind them :0)
All these cute fish are from Chocolate baroque steampunk themed stamp sets and I colored them with Tombow Dual brush pens and Distress markers and framed with Faded jeans colour. Finally I added white shading with a colored pencil and Sakura Souffle gel pen.

My quote - a short poem - reflects the feelings of the day and in English could be approximately like this:
"I feel great, it's not a dream,
like a fish in water stream.
What's the water? Who knows it ever?
I might even float in heaven...

Have a very happy day and thanks for stopping by :0)
