This is just a big jumble.... this is how I abandoned it yesterday. Too many colours I think and too busy. Tried dulling it down with some gesso washed over.
So tonight I added some black, some writing (using India ink and one of the dipping pens I found at Mum's at Easter when we were clearing out & decorating)
The Dina Wakley images are stamped onto tissue wrap and stuck to the page. I also did some 'bumping' over the alphabet stencilling. Also splattered some india ink over the page too.
Then to find some images...
Stamps required - time for Tim! I love this hot air balloon, and the men from the steampunk set. I coloured some glossy cardstock with Dylusion sprays spritzed with water, and cut the balloon out. The 3 guys are just on plain white cardstock.

Thanks for looking. Please tell me what else I could have done to rescue the first page (other than tear it out of the journal, except it's on the other side of the previous page that I did like...which now has pink splodges come through onto the green and yellow!)
