There are times when it can feel like everything is a little too closed in.
As if you're moving through a very narrow tunnel.
With very high walls.
It isn't always comfortable.
But what can seem restrictive for a season can often lead to greater freedom in the long run.
I did my journalling on the back of this little tag.
The thoughts for this page came when I started putting the long triangles between the pieces of washi tape. As they started to emerge, I started to fan them out, and it felt like freedom.
The outlining on these circles and the stripes around the edge are done with some really creamy pencils from Derwent. I love the way the layers show through here - stencilled chevrons in gesso and spray ink, acrylic smeared over the top with a baby-wipe. The circles look as if they are stuck on over the top, but they are actually the holes in the paper left when I punched out the circles on the other side of the page.
