Triumphs and Defeats journal page

Another art journal page. I meant to have this ready for the Fall, Fearless, and Fly challenge but wasn't feeling well and didn't have the energy or desire to get it done on time. I am posting it anyway because it is a page and I did paint, and I also worked on it a lot. It doesn't make sense to me yet but I had this I went with it.
The quote is this:
"Not in the clamour of the crowded street,
not in the shouts and the plaudits of the throng,
but in ourselves, are Triumph and Defeat."

The color theme is obvious: black and white. It was really different to work with just these colors but I love how it turned out.
To tell the truth I don't know what I would have colored this if I could have used any color!

Close ups of the two halves.

I'm also sharing this page with others on the following blogs:
Art Journal Everyday -this is a group, you might have to join to view the artwork.
Creative Everyday-Art Every Day Month (Nov) #46
and Mandarin Orange Monday -#42 (for my "orange" version of this page below)
I just love photoshop! All I did was adjust the hue, saturation, and lightness of my page and this is what I got. Love it!

Create Everyday

I have been creating everyday this month. I've only done one art journal page but I've also made a card, a scrapbook page and I'm journaling in my smash book. I am loving it.
This page is me, I am very passionate about everything. I am also stressed out a lot. I have to learn to relax yet live passionately. Is that possible? Well, at least I hope you find this page interesting. Thanks for looking!
