Thunder Bolts and Lightning

Linda has chosen the theme for this months Art Journal Journey challenge, the theme she has chosen is For The Record/Inspired By A Song. I couldn't decide what song to choose and then we had a storm one night and the words "Thunder bolts and lightning, very very frightening" came into my head so my song is Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody.

I had a very dark gelli print that I wasn't sure what too use it for, it looked stormy so I decided to use it for the background and glued it to my journal page. I used a Dylusions umbrella stamp and patterned paper, after I stamped the umbrellas I cut them out and glued them to the page. I used a white pen to draw the thunderbolts and lightening and scribbled round them with a white pencil, I think I put to much white on as it got rid of too much of the dark background.

Thank you for looking.
