DLS week 2 - The beginning is always today

Week to of DLS has a quote by Mary Shelley, “The beginning is always today.”, combined with the art challenge gesso. I tried out different things on these pages. I used gesso to cover up previous darker colours, re-painted and re-gessoed a number of times. I made my own stencils and used them with red acryllic and gesso. I also added the cut out parts of the stencil. I just wrote down the quote and came up with carpe diem as the essence of starting today, every day. In addition to that I guess you have to start right here, right now... which is why I created the little arrow/sign. I'm not totally happy with the way it turned out but hey - this is part of the process of art journalling, I guess!
