February colors with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here with my project made for our February color swatches.

Last year I picked a word for my crafty life. The word was DARE.
I think I followed this word in my crafting and dared to try things I never did before. Some of those things were successful, some  were less, but at least I tried hard to follow my path.
The only thing I didn't try last year was a real art journalling. I didn't even have a real journal to work with.
I have one now and today I want to share with you my very first art journal double spread with this so obvious title : DARE.
I am not sure if this is the way art journal should look, but it's my journal and my way of art expression, so I think I like it this way.
I made the background with lots of mediums, paper pieces, mesh, tapes and a lot of stencils used with texture paste.
I stamped with Rubber Dance background stamps and added the main sentiment using Think Again set.
The word Dare was made with stencil and black ink. The eyes are the main issue over this page: my vision of things I dared to try last 2014 year.

 I used those " mute" pastel colors just for one major reason: I was afraid to make too many mistakes with dark colors. With light ones the repair is easy (some gesso and it's all done).
I really hope I am on the right way with my new art journal adventure.
Please be gentle with me! I dare, but I do make mistakes. We all do. And we grow within all own mistakes.
