8,5 x11" Art journal page

Okay, what can I say about this art journal page? I started it in January. I apparently knew what I wanted to draw. Then I stopped, because I didn't know how to proceed, what I wanted to express, which technique to use, which colour to choose, etc. So I put the page on a side. Yes, for a couple of weeks. Every time I looked at the page my head went blank:) But I really wanted to send the art journal page to my swap partner. I can't tell all the things I thought about, but today I came at home, started and it all went from there. Happy dance here!

I have to say that I like this art journal page, so, so much and it will hurt to send. But hey, I will not start the process all over again, so this art journal page is ready to leave my home and travel overseas to Colleen:)
