An Emotional Art Journal Page

I cried after completing this art journal page.   After losing 120lbs and keeping it off for the past 3 years this page says so much...I feel strong, beautiful and free from the many constraints of morbid obesity. I am amazed at how just allowing myself to freely create, this is the image I came up with. It's perfect. I love it. It's me! 

Notice how it looks like she is coming forth out of the darkness.  This process is very freeing and enlightening. Page not planned, as a matter of fact, as I started it I didn't even like it.  However, I LOVE the finished page.

Supplies used: Vibez Mists, Making Memories Acrylic Paints, Tim Holtz Stamp, Scrappy Cat Stamps, Black Gesso, Reeves Oil Pastels. 

How do you incorporate art journaling with your crafting?
