Show Us Your Media 5 - ideas time!

I'd not seen Dina Wakley's awesome competition with Ranger each month - #showusyourmedia - until last month and my mixed media composition "Fear" was my entry to Month 4. Month 5 is now upon us "What makes you you" - that's a tricky one and quite exposing so I'm trying to come up with ideas that aren't too logical or linear. I think I will do it in my Dina Wakley Media Journal (which is nearly finished - good thing I have 11 more so I can do a whole year with them!) on a burlap page (to stretch me) and it will probably be an acrylic-based mixed-media piece - though I'm kind of tempted to go all out and use a linen canvas as then I can work on it separately to the rest of my journal and I do love the linen backgrounds. I can stick some burlap onto it for texture. Trying to move away from my temptation to use earth-tones and keep it very soft - I don't use bright colours enough when painting myself - I think it's time I tried... Ooooh maybe I could monoprint this...
