art journal - live strong

I have been working on my art journal alot, just havent found the time to share some pages! This is a 2 page spread that sort of took on a life of its own and created its own meaning. It amazes me how sometimes I create something without a lot of thought and it turns out to mean something completely unintended. Does this happen to you? I made the right hand page first. I really just liked the bike on the vintage bag and decided to highlight that. I outlined it with glossy accents. I picked the title "grow strong" for that page. Next I created the left page. I chose a bingo card that says live. It never occured to me that "Live Strong" was an actual foundation. Of course I knew about it and stuff but I didnt relize what I had created... if that makes sence. And with a bicycle on the page too! I cannot belive it! haha
I added paint and ink over the glossy accents for a distressed and raised effect.

I outlined the stamped title with more glossy accents. I really like using this on my pages because it is fun to feel.
