Bright brush

Refers to a brush that has the same shape as a “flat” however the hairs are not as long as those on the flat brush.

The Journal52 prompt for week 7 is
I did end up 50 years later actually doing something art related which had been a childhood fantasy job, so I am living out one of my dreams....but I also like most children had multiple thoughts on the subject of what I envisioned I could become. I ghost journaled all those jobs and dreams...don't see them, well, hang on and you will!

The art brush symbolizes my art, selling it at the Art Mob has been a dream come true for me. I have been successfully doing it for over a year now and loving every minute of it!

Each set of words are written 3 different ways. The largest is my title " In the end I just became me", and the pink ink flows out from the heart surrounding the words with the negative spaces not colored in, then we have the background circles saying "I am a work in progress", both written in all capitals but 2 things differ....first the circles go clockwise and counter clockwise. All the writing going clockwise have white colored in the negative spaces and those going counter clockwise are colored in with black ink. Still not seeing the under journaling??

Next the heart is more solid and serene for while I am a work in progress
 ( probably until the day I die ) I am happy and content where my life has lead me, so I wanted the heart to look peaceful and not cluttered, also not finished because there is always room in my heart for more.

And now for the surprise under journaling, something I didn't mean to happen this way, but sometimes it happens when we aren't expecting it. I wrote with my Faber Castell Big Stamp pen over the layer of inks and gesso and it kinda sunk in and dissappeared, well, that is until the light hits the page just right and then, BAM....!!

Seriously, almost kinda freaky, really! Here's a close up

Fun prompt with unexpected results!
