Mixed Media Art Journal Page: 42 is just a number

I'll be celebrating my birthday on Monday and I'll be 42 years old. I don't know why but it feels kind of old. I know in my head I'm young but I loo back at all the things I've done and it seems like it's not enough... So I decided to create an art journal page to cheer myself up and remind myself that 42 is just a number!

I started with creating a numbered texture on white cardstock with Spellbinders M-bossabilities Letters and Numbers folder. I tore some pieces and glued them to the page with gel medium. Then I covered the page with gesso.

I sprayed the page with spray paints and then enhanced the color with matching distress inks. I added more numbers with two sizes of numbers stamps.

Finally I cut the number 42 from patterned paper and added color with the same distress inks I used for the background. I wrote the sentence on a white piece of paper and added everything to the page.

I hope you liked the page and it has inspired you not to think of your age but to feel young because that's what counts!

Have fun creating!
