An Art Journal layout

Woo hoo!! I actually got to create something! Granted, it took many more hours than normal but I enjoyed playing with some artsy stuff again =)
But before I get to my pages, let me just say how much you all touched me during my recent absence. All of the comments and those of you that have taken the time to email me have touched me deeply! I truly appreciate the prayers, love and concern, so from the very bottom of my heart, thank you!!

This is a layout from my art journal. I really should call it my sketchbook because I still don't do that journaling part. I am still practicing sketching and I still love it. I painted the majority of this with watercolor paints and pencils but when I got to the embellishing stage I did add some pen and ink details, some collaging, acrylic paints using both a brayer and stamps, stickles, star sequins and some sort of reflective stuff on her wings that I picked from Michaels. 

And here's a close up of that stuff on her wings:
I bought that stuff thinking it will make great snow but now I see I could use it on on all kinds of stuff. Wouldn't it look great on an underwater scene??  
I've been doing some Zentangles to soothe the creative void so maybe I will have a few of those I can share sometime soon. Thanks again ♥
