Michelle Wards Crusade #61 is about restraining yourself- which is a challenge for me. I made this art journal page a while ago but felt conflicted. I usually fill a page with lots and lots. I like things overdone just like the king’s little chateau in Versailles. This page was different. I loved the greens and blues so much I didn’t cover up the background. I kept it, waiting patiently for the answer to reveal itself. I couldn’t consider it finished with all that blank space in the middle.
My answer is in this month’s Crusade. I have been given permission to restrain myself. This is a “quiet” journal page that reminds me of the peace of watching the waves on vacation. The blues and greens of the ocean waves are hypnotic and pure happiness. Now I consider it complete.
Thanks Michelle for all the wonderful Crusades, the inspiration, and all the wonderful people I have gotten to know from these!
