Art Journal January Day 21

Day 21 and counting!
Today we were to create a mandala. I chose to stay with my theme, and to write some positive self affirmations to help me to grow, renew and revive.

I started in the center and worked my way out by using several different media. First it was some green and blue water color brush pens, in two different colors of each. Then green and blue water color crayons, again in two different shades of blue and green.
Then blue and green oil pastels. Next I went over everything with blue and green water soluble pencils. Lastly I added some silver ink, and some blue and green twinkling H2Os.
I added some text stamps, and then I wrote my affirmations around from the center words. I added a little charcoal pencil and smudged it for depth. That's it- pretty simple, and it is quite shimmery.
