It's that time of year! 
All of the hustle and bustle to get things ready for the BIG DAY can get to be a little stressful. 
One of my favorite ways to unwind is playing with my art supplies and this months challenge made it easy and fun. 
I started with a pile of papers...

...which I tore and then glued onto my journal page... and forget take a picture of this stage :( 
Next I added white gesso and texture paste to the page... followed with some color washes...

I was hoping more of the papers would show through but I got a little to heavy handed with the gesso. If you look close in person you can see the papers in the background. 
Then I added my focal image and the words I had chosen to use. 

All in all I'm happy with it and it has a personal message that I'm not sharing. You'll just have to come up with your own interpretation of it's meaning :) 
 Hope you are all doing well with your Holiday craziness!
