Through The Eyes of An Artist

Can it be?  No more tags!  Fortunately I have plenty of other projects so I didn't have withdrawal.  Much.  The first item on my non-tag to do list was pages for Sue's TTEOAA journal.
I realized today that what I am calling the "background" is really the piece.  I get so involved in it, and put so much into it, there really isn't much to add at the end.
I began with fabriano paper which was sprayed heavily with various colors of homemade shimmer mist, then collaged with various scraps.
I cut long strips from the leftovers of another project and attached them over the collage.  Some inking, stamping and then the addition of the clip art (which I colored with water soluble oil pastels) and text.
Thanks to Valerie!  I raided her awesome collection of images for this one.
