A Year in the Life of an Art Journal: January 30th Prompt

ie: what's in your imagination or where do you imagine yourself
THE STUFF: Pictures or words from magazines/newspapers etc
ie: Words, letters or images that develop your idea
THE TEChNIQUE: mask/stencils
ie: can be anything from flowers, letters, rubberbands or professional mask or stencils

Took me 2 days to get this one done... started doodling while boob-tubing last night, but am still truly exhausted from being sick this week. Finished it off this morning. I kind of like the different 'styles' that happened from doing it in 2 waves. The inspiration came from the Icon on the right I had stored in my laptop (unsure or origin)... colors and swirly, swoopy style.

I imagine myself in a pretty flower filled garden, surrounded by COLOR, lots of it.
The 'bubbles' are a stencil. Used mini-ink pads, markers and paint on this page.
Trust that little voice in your head that says
"Wouldn't it be interesting if..."
And then do it.
