The Mess Controls Me - art journal page

This is one of those pages that started out one way and turned into something completely unexpected by the time I was done with it.   It started out all pretty and light and I did something that I didn't like, got frustrated because I couldn't get it covered up the way I wanted to and so I started dripping different colors of liquid acrylic paints down the edges and I ended up with this. lol  But, as I worked through this, my frilly, pretty idea from the beginning morphed into what has really been bothering me a lot lately....the mess and unorganized chaos that's been controlling my every move lately.  I have good intentions about getting it together, but I just can't seem to stick with it and pull out of this chaos.  I've got to get it in gear though, because school starts this Tuesday for my 15 year old daughter and my 4 year old daughter starts preschool at the end of the month.....hopefully I will be inspired to do a page soon about how I overcame this chaos and finally pulled out of this crippling mess I've let myself get into.

p.s.....this darling stamp is Party Girl by Suzi Blu

God Bless!
