Beginner Art Journalist: May Mission Inspiration Challenge

In my last post, I told you that the Mike Deakin mission inspiration challenge was a little daunting for me well I decided to try it this month. I always struggle when facing an empty page so this is a way to start. It is difficult having to take every step and wonder what the composition well look like in the end.
Finished piece.
1. added composition paper.

3, 4, 5.  I added a teal color to the background
glued ribbon from a lanyard as a border,
and added 3 focal points, shoes, map,
 and the mountains.
6. bubble wrap and a toaster oven utensil
to make marks with titanium white paint.
2. I stamped book pages with butterflies
and flowers using archival ink.
7, 8. I add words for the month
and add cardboard strips. I added
gray paint to the cardboard
to balance the color.
I used the butterfly and flower stamps from these sets. And rummaged around to find these household utensils.
