Beauty From Pain by ambrabealey Beauty From Pain by ambrabealey
The lights go out all around me,
One last candle to keep out the night,
And then the darkness surrounds me.
I know I'm alive but I feel like I've died.

After all this has passed, I still will remain.
After I've cried my last, there'll be beauty from pain.

'Beauty from pain' by Superchick.

This is a double page spread from my second art journal. It started when I was experimenting with gel transfers and this one went a bit wrong, but I decided to use it anyway and quite liked the effect.

Materials include white gesso, black gesso, gel matte medium, black India ink, white gel pen, white acrylic paint, a magazine image, and scraps of text and music sheets.

When I first saw this I thought it was River Song! hehe But that could be 2 reasons. 1. Because I have one swollen eye and look like a Doctor Who monster! Awesome! XD or 2. Which is most likely is that I see doctor Who stuff in everything! hehe Tis a great piece!! =D

Noooo not yet, I probably will tonight. I'm trying to reserve judgement until I've seen it but it's just not the same with this new trio :(
