Brontophobia: noun

An abnormal fear of thunder.

I'm taking an online class which starts tonight called Draw Your Awesome Life with Joanne Sharpe so I thought I'd do some random wording and play with my pens and markers. This is what happened...it's messy, unorganized chaotic goodness. It was fun to intentionally be loose and just let things flow. It doesn't matter if it's perfect, it's in my journal...it's for me....it's about me.
It is me.

I used everything but the kitchen sink I think; acrylics, watercolor crayons, sharpies, PITT pens, Sakura pens and paint markers. Even a real Sugar Maple leaf that I was using as a stamp on my gelli plate. 
( I used a gel medium to cover it and it stayed extremely flexible, I'm very pleased with the result. )
The other leaf, in the top left corner, I used from the gelli print making process, while it was covered with paint I pressed it ( using a paper towel ) onto my journal.

I love the fact that you used everything but the "kitchen sink" on your journal page. Your page came out both practical and artistic.
