good luck

With this journal page I want to wish Ian and Sandy from The Craft Barn good luck (this week's Craft Barn challenge) with their new online business. (They closed their physical store last weekend)
I started out by writing good luck in a dozen different languages.

Next added a layer of light green acrylic paint, masked off a center piece and stenciled a border of cloves in a darker shade of green.
In the center piece I wanted to write my quote, but because I believe the background words would interfere too much with the quote I first glued down a piece of tissue paper. I've created the illusion that the piece is hold in place with washi tape. 
As a final touch I added small dots in all the clover leaves of the border. I must say that doodling doesn't seem to unstress me, on the contrary, I get stressed by the slow progress.


  1. You made me giggle with your stress reference! Keep calm and doodle!

  2. What a great idea. Especially like the Good Luck in different languages.

  3. I agree with you, doodling on PURPOSE is really stressful! Great references to luck in colours, motif and quote.

  4. Hope you weren't too stressed! Lovely project. Thank you for joining in The Craft Barn Challenge.

  5. Great idea writing "good luck" in different languages. I recently made an atc holder for a zentangle competition and found the doodling bit very stressful. Give me a bit of straight forward colouring any day.
