Make The Most Out Of Your Journey In Life

I made this mixed media canvas using Gesso, Stencils, stamps, stickers, marker, spray paints and paint daubers.
The girl stamp is from Julie Nutting...and it's called Chiara.
The stencils are from the Tim Holtz Collection.
I used a heavy gesso and the stencils, filling in the stencils with the gesso...and then let it dry completely.   Not sure if you can tell, but the print is raised off the canvas.
I added some stars and hearts stickers.  Then spray painted it with several different colors.
I hand wrote the make the most out of your journey in life with a black marker.
After I lifted the stencils off...the two designs reminded me of feet, that gave me the inspiration for the rest of it.

I am entering this into:
