Art Journal Page - "Be Kind to Yourself"

If you have been following me for awhile, it is probably no shock I am in love with Dina Wakley. I stalk her blog and instagram. I have every book and DVD she has put out. I am obsessed. But usually when I make a page inspired by her, it ends up looking exactly like her style. I have been trying lately to make pages taking her techniques but not copying her. It's hard when I like her style so much.

I don't think I succeeded in making this page look less like hers and more like mine, but oh well. Here it is:
