I'm Gonna Fly Like a Bird Through the Night ~ Art Journal Page - C'est Magnifique

This is my final project with the C'est Magnifique September Kit - an Art Journal page inspired by the song Chandelier by Sia.
I started a new art journal using an old book I picked up for free at work (the benefits of working at a university - people often leave boxes of old textbooks up for grabs). I started out by priming the pages with a light coat of gesso and a light misting and splatter with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Mist in Wild Honeysuckle Coral (stash). I also did some stamping with the Prima stamps and Dark Brown ink pad included in the Main Kit. I added the Prima Canvas ATC to the right page and bits of canvas peeled off the ATC around both pages. Then I used the Coffee Dylusions from the Magnifque Mixed Media (MMM) Kit on the background.  I embellished the journal page with the fussy cut compass and tags from the Riddersholm Design paper/tag sheet and added the birds from the MMM (painted with gesso and then misted with the Lindy's Coral Mist) and the Marion Smith Designs Metal Filagree Doilies from the Embellishment Add-on (EAO). Finally, I added the song lyrics to the canvas ATC using the Authentique Mini-Alphas from the Main Kit. Here are a couple of close-ups!

I find so much inspiration in music lyrics - I think I'll keep this art journal dedicated to music! Can't wait to work in it again! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!
