March challenge



I created this collage for the March challenge at Mind Wide Open. They will be posted on the 8th and you can go over and vote. I like the image, but finishing this was like pulling teeth. Sometimes everything just flows together and other times nothing seems to work right. I'm not completely pleased with it, but entered it just because I spent so much effort on it. I do like the background, but the lettering I used can hardly be read. I used these fancy letter stamps and they just are hard to read. It says "Journey deep into my soul" Well I hope you like it.

Love your color palette - you are being too hard on yourself!

Great piece overall. If you want the letters to stand out more, maybe trace one side with a dark color for depth? Just a guess - dunno if it would work

Thanks so much Stacey. I just got really frustrated working on this piece or some reason. I will try your suggestion for the letters. I love these alphabet stamps, but they are just hard to read. To much going on I guess.

I think you're being too hard on yourself too - the background is gorgeous.
