You have wings to FLY!

I have to admit that not having a face on the page is definitely not my style. But that doesn’t mean this is the last time I’m going to try this paper overlapping art journal kind of page. After all, it was fun trying to arrange the paper bits in such a way to visually look better.
Of course, there’s plenty of room for something better than the page today, but for the moment I am happy with it asit’s the first time when trying this kind of art journal page, leaving outside the usual faces my journal hosted until today.

Trebuie sa recunosc ca nu e stilul meu sa creez o pagina care sa nu aiba si o față. Dar asta nu inseamna ca va fi ultima oara cand o sa incerc acest tip de pagina cu bucati de hartie suprapuse. La o adica, m-am distrat incercand sa le asez cat mai bine posibil in asa fel incat sa dea bine estetic.
Desigur, exista intotdeauna loc de mai bine daca te uiti la pagina mea de astazi, dar pentru moment sunt multumita de felul in care a iesit dat fiind faptul ca este prima data cand creez o asemenea pagina, lasand la o parte fetele ce apareau in jurnalul meu pana azi.

Dare to become what you always were meant to become: a beautiful creative being coming into real life and enjoying every moment of the journey! The ups and downs are only for making you realize you are all worth it. Don’t stop now and create the beautiful fulfilling life you deserve.

Indrazneste se devii ceea ce ai fost intotdeauna menit sa devii: o minunata fiinta creativa traind viata asa cum este si bucura-te de fiecare moment al calatoriei! Suisurile si coborasurile sunt doar pentru a te face sa intelegi cat de important esti. Nu te opri acum si creeaza viata minunata si implinita pe care o meriti.

The idea of this page came to me when I found myself looking through a bunch of leftovers from other pages, pieces of paper and tissues, mostly ephemera.

Ideea acestei pagini mi-a venit cand am cotrobait printr-o multime de bucati de hartie ramase de la alte proiecte, bucati de hartie sau servetel, majoritatea efemere.

I wanted something pretty simple, so I started building the background using Faber Castell gel sticks, and smudged the colors with my fingers. Now it’s time to decide what I’m going to use for the collage and after applying the flower stamp, I teared pieces of package paper and inked tissue. I used my ink pad to distress the edges of the collaged paper and glued down the left side of the page.

Am vrut ceva destul de simplu, asa ca am inceput sa contruiesc fundalul paginii folosind batoanele gel stick de la Faber Castell pe care le-am intins cu degetele. Acum e timpul sa ma decid ce folosesc pentru colaj si, dupa ce am aplicat stampila cu floare, am rupt bucati de hartie de ambalaj si una dintr-un servetel “patat” cu cerneala albastru turcuaz. Am folosit tusiera pentru a “imbatrani” marginile hartiei pentru colaj si am lipit-o in partea stanga a paginii.

On the right side I glued down a piece from another packaging paper I had at hand which I previously stamped with a text and butterflies stamp. The piece of paper who has the hand written text was initially an acrylic color palette I used for another project and the colors are randomly spread on the paper, which created an interesting effect. The paper with Chinese lettering (I think it’s Chinese) it’s from an user manual I wanted to throw away a long time ago but never did thinking that will serve me in the future. 😉 The rest are stamps and washi tape – and a few meaningful words. Now it’s your turn!

In partea dreapta am lipit o bucata de hartie ramasa de la o punga de ambalaj care mi-a fost la indemana si pe care mai intai am stampilat-o cu o stampila cu text si fluturasi. Bucata de hartie pe care apare textul scris de mana a folosit drept paleta de culori acrilice pe care le-am folosit la alt proiect, iar culorile fiind imprastiate absolut aleatoriu creeaza un efect interesant. Hartia cu textul in chineza (cred ca e chineza!) este ramasa de la un manual de utilizare pe care am vrut sa-l arunc de mult timp, dar am zis mereu ca poate o sa-mi foloseasca la ceva intr-o zi.. 😉 Restul sunt stampile si banda adeziva washi – si cateva randuri intelepte. Acum e randul tau!
