Journal Page........

Evening all,

hope everyone is well? Ha ha I am determined to create more and share more this year now that I'm feeling a little more confident with what I am doing, long may this last and I hope you will join me on my 'travels' this year too.

I am so so pleased with how this page evolved, considering it started life as a 'tester page' for some new paints!!

I started by randomly stamping a viva decor flourish using raspberry memento ink.  The distress inks came out for the next layer and were built up gradually and then spritzed with water to help blend the colour blocks. My scrap paper box was raided for some complementary patterned papers which were hand cut and stuck on before I further attacked the page with the paints I wanted to 'test'. The paints were sponged through Tando's 'sequin waste' and 'random circles' mask until I was happy.
The gorgeous fella is Stampotiques 'heart throb' and the sentiment is a random one from my stash. Heart throb has been coloured using promarkers and grounded to the page with a strip of Tim Holtz tissue tape.
Lots of doodling later, with the random circles of white again courtesy of Tando's 'sequin waste' mask, and 'voila'!!

Many thanks for popping by and leaving a comment if you feel you would like to.
