I had made a mess of an art journal page in which I tried to emboss over a collage made from prints with my gelli plate, paint the whole thing with acrylic paint and then rub away the paint from the embossed parts to show the collage below. It just didn't work. But the experiment left me with some wonderful texture and interesting colors and marks. (Note to self - never give up -- each step leads to something else, and the end result can make you happy even if the steps along the way make you want to throw the whole thing out!) Squinting at it, I found a face in the lower right, and made the rest into wild hair. Inside that hair, I found a dove.
Obviously, a girl with a dove in her hair must have peace on her mind.
"Mostly, she thought about how to make the world a more peaceful place."
“There is a criterion by which you can judge whether the thoughts you are thinking and the things you are doing are right. The criterion is: Have they brought you inner peace? If what you do has brought you inner peace, stay with what you believe is right.” Peace Pilgrim
