Collage in Black-1 Diva for IA

Five days of playing with Art is indeed a challenge for me. Setting up time to do this is what is actually challenging. With a five year old who wants to do all the artsy stuff that his mama does and a busy, adventurous 11 month old who is always on the look out for trouble keep me super busy all day. I usually sit with my creative muse early in the mornings or late in the night.

Due to time constraints I decided to use a small Strathmore Visual Journal to create the 5 days' pages.
For Day-1,  I did this collage.  The 'beaded' line states,"Black is here to stay."

Whenever I do Art Journalling I start off with a vague idea in my mind. But quite often the result will be nothing close to what I had planned. The same has happened on this page too. Nonetheless I am happy with the result.
I'm also linking this page to this week's IA theme-Diva

See you tomorrow with a new page.
Thanks for visiting
