Q&L #11 - Mistake

The Craft Barn words for their challenge this fortnight are "Mountain" and "Mistake".

I was tempted by the John Denver song with "mountain momma" in it but then found the quote by Friedrich Nietzsche, 

"Without music, life would be a mistake." 

I used one of my new stencils which I bought at The Craft Barn's extravaganza weekend. I sprayed the excess ink on it with water and turned it over to create the ghosting on which I wrote the words.

I guess my picture is more like a Country Road after all.

Lovely page.

Oh BJ, this is wonderful. And I really like the tip about adding water to make the stencil last longer with a ghost print. I'll have to remember that one. I really like your colors too. There's a lot of movement in this work, and I guess it comes from the "music."

Love the original way in which you wrote the quote and the white pen work.

So sorry for the late visit BJ, but I'm really glad I made it; your page is beautiful and I love how you did the ghosting and then wrote in it. The quote is fabulous and so true :D
