A year in the Life of an Art Journal - prompt april 30th

It is time for a new prompt at A year in the Life of an Art Journal

The Prompt:  Nature is a wonderous thing
ie: use pics of nature
The stuff: Don't quote me on it
ie: use a quote or quotes
The Technique: Gesso & stencils
ie: try something different and use Gesso on your stencils for texure!

I did 2 aspects of the prompt. Gesso and a quote.
I used a vintage silicon tablemat as my mask. I spread heavy white gesso over it. When the gesso where almost dry, I sprits it with water and various dylusions spray inks. I added medical tape on the page just for some extra interest. 
The quote is from a Norwegian poet/song writer and it is about happiness. It says something like this :
 If you look inside yourselves you will find the happiness that you travel over the mountains to find.

Hope you'll find time to play with us, please check the link for more inspiration and information.
