2 Art Journal pages for October

2 pages I haven't shared here yet. This first is an experiment, which I quite like. I embossed a sheet of Core'dinations with stars and then went around some with a white gel pen. I added star gems to others. I then stamped a school raffle ticket and tore it into strips. The quotation from Jostein Gaarder is one I particularly like. The chances of us ever being born are tiny (if any of our ancestors had died before having children, we would not be us) but we only see the 'winning tickets', the living people. That makes me realise how lucky I am to be alive.

This page is a photograph of a suspension bridge in France. I mounted it onto a sheet of paper with a stripe at the 'horizon' and then simply extended all the straight lines with a white gel pen, once again.

I love these pages, Kirsty! (and by the way, they definitely count!) That's a great quotation from Jostein Gaarder, and you've inspired me to make a similar page for my own art journal, thank you :)

Like the bridge one especially! Just curious but do you know if that quote is from one of Gaarder's books as I have a read a couple?
