More journaling

Posted by Picasa

A journal page completed yesterday. I used lots of layers of acrylic paint, some of it by accident. I added some black with a brayer and it was a BIG mistake so I wiped it off with a trusty old baby wipe and I quite liked the effect of what I created by mistake! I added some old sheet music, stamping with bottle tops, added distress inks, crayons, a stamp by Invoke Arts and an image from Paperstreet. I did the wobbly writing with a calligraphy dip-pen. I love using dip pens - it feels like stepping back in time.
Now going to dodge the rain on a day out on a typical English summer day (grey and rainy).
Off on hols soon for some much needed sunshine.....have been prepapring some journal backgrounds ready to go. More later......
Byee for now.
