Fortune Cookies and Art Journals

Do you keep your fortunes that you find in fortune cookies?
I keep most of them. They usually have something good to say.
If not, I still use them for backgrounds in art journal.
I found this one while cleaning my art room (still not clean yet!).
So instead of cleaning thought I would create a page in my small mixed media journal.

Lots of layers of inks, gesso, bits of paper and string.
This is my fortune. 

Hmmmm not sure what my "unexpected gains" will be but I'm excited to find out!
Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Beautiful Karen!!! I loooove all that texture! You know how I am about texture! I save my fortunes too- I keep thinking the good ones will come true! xo

  2. That's a great idea to keep the fortune message, I need to remember and keep mine next time. Thanks for sharing, it looks wonderful!

  3. :) The colors are so vibrant and loooove the texture created with the mediums and added bits :)
