Smeared & Smudged's March Blog Hop "Void"

I was eager to join Smeared & Smudged's March Blog hop despite the topic of "void". You must use a stamped image in their blog hops. I love their stamps. I belong to their Smeared Ink monthly stamp club. So, I chose to use one of the stamps from them..hence the skull stamp I used is From Smeared Ink. When I think of the topic of void I always think of thought and feelings. Some people are just void of one or the other unless it directly pertains to them. Some people think they know it all and they are the ones I think are completely void of thought. My void stamped project was a page in my new art journal. I incorporated a quote from poet, Ezra Pound. He can be a little pessimistic but he keeps it real. I used Tattered angels glimmer mists and spider web mask. Notice they are "void" of any little spiders or spiders' tasty morsels(other bugs). I painted the skull stamped image with Shimmerz then outlined it with color from Copic markers. I outlined the page and skull with a yellow Martha Stewart marker. I used Tattered Angels black Glam in the eye sockets, nose holes and mouth.
Go to http://moresmearedink.blogspot.com/ to follow the blog hop. I would have posted the actual blog roll but for some reason my mac (and ipad) would not allow me. Please leave a comment. I like to read them.

Really enjoyed how everyone was so diverse in their interpretation of the theme. Emotional void is awesome, the artistic use of it that is.
