junk journal page #14

YES, page #14 is finished (I think) J

It all started out with some randomly glued leftover letters on a cereal box
Then some stenciling (the pink is actually a fluo pink but this doesn't scan at all)

And then I was stuck,I liked what I had with the circles but it definitely needed something more.
I started by adding some chunky journaling (something I've never done before and must say I'm not overwhelmed with my result aka handwriting, probably need some practice), 
Added a silhouette, still not quite there yet however.
Added another silhoutte, getting there.
But the silhouettes didn't really pop because of all of the color, so I wanted to mute that a bit down, first sprayed some black through a stencil but for whatever reason it didn't stick to the page, so I decided to stencil it with white acrylic paint.
Then some final finishing touches: the leave die cuts, some masking tape and some magical fibres.

This page was definitely a case of keep on layering until I was satisfied. Normally I like each step and am afraid of adding but not in this case, so I kept on going until something half decent came up.

junk used: cereal box, leftover letters, die cuts and magical fibres.
