Where are you?

I love light green, and so I was delighted to see the ongoing Chocolate Baroque colour challenge with light yellow, light green, light blue and pink. I decided to start with a spread in my art journal (so far all the spreads have been green with lots of vegetation :) I am entering this spread for the CB colour challenge and the SimonSays Stamp Wednesday Challenge (Anything goes) and the SimonSaysStamp Work It Wednesday challenge (Something you love).

The text is from a lovely book called "In the beginning there was a garden" (Alussa oli puutarha, Johanna ja Juha Tanska) which is a meditative book on gardens and gardening... Asking "Where are you?" and pondering the difficulty of being in the here and now. Excellent thoughts for stepping into a new year. I wanted to build the image of an outgrown garden, and did loads of inky stamping and fussy cutting. All the stamps (except the alphabet stamps) are from CB and the stencils used in the background are from the Crafters Workshop. I wasn't sure how well the micron pen would have dried on the acrylic paints used on the background, so I wrote on a piece of tissue paper (enjoying the possibility of placing it on a striped background so I could write straight) and decoupaged it on the finished page.
