This is a new thing for me. I've never used emotion in my art. I've never put thoughts onto a page. I've always just started a page and whatever happened after that was, well, whatever happened! I used to write my dreams down all the time, many years ago. After the birth of my daughter, I found morning routines more of a priority, and by the time I remembered I hadn't written down my dream, I had forgotten most of the details and didn't bother writing it down. I think it's something I might just start doing again. Anyway, I thought that this particular dream might be quite interesting as a journal page. I had already prepared a page for another project, but wasn't entirely happy with how it was going, so I gesso'd over the top of it. There had been quite a bit of texture on the original page, layers of paper, oil paint and ink, so I thought this would be an added feature to the darkness of the page.
For this page, I used acrylic paint and oil pastel. The teddy bear is something I found on Google Images. I splattered a little Indian ink over the page too, just to make it that little bit more grungy. I have blurred some of the text. Although I want to share my page with my readers, I do want to keep the text just a little bit private.
