More journal pages

I can't think of anything witty to call this one!  Blogger is fixed hurrah so hopefully I will be able to load the pictures I want to... let's see!

So, broke out the Freco paints again - inky pool and limelight. Inky pool is such a gorgeous colour...Applied it randomly with cut and dry foam









then went in with some stencils and baltic blue,  vintage lace  paints and tumbled glass DI with the harlequin stencil.  Had a bit of a splurgy problem with the bingo stencil, the foam was very wet and the blue paint puddled...
Stamped the leaf randomly (Dylusions) and added some colour with portfolio pastels, sealed that with satin glaze.


Added some die cut numbers, edged with a white pen. Used Tim's stamp Enjoy the journey - but I only inked the 'enjoy the' from that stamp, and used the larger 'journey' from the set called 'travelling friends' and I then doodled some white dots over it.


I'm hoping to have a play tomorrow or at the weekend with my new die 'word play' which is a bigger alphabet (a new Tim Holtz die) it looks fab... but you'll know that if you saw any of QVC's craft day earlier this week!
