Getting Dylusional

It was time for another play in my new Dyan Reaveley art journal today. I used mainly postbox red, but also the pure sunshine, lemon zest and a little fresh lime.
Then for some stencilling - used water through the dotty stencil (I only have the small size) to get the ghosting effect, then black marble through the alphabet (again, I only have the smaller one)
 I stamped Lucy from 'Love Struck Lucy' on white card and cut her out, along with several of one of the images from 'Doodle Parts', cut them all out and sprayed them with the postbox red ink. Dried them, and stuck them together to form Lucy's head-dress and stuck the whole lot in the album. Outlined some of the head-dress in white pen (it actually shows up more in the photo than IRL, must be the flash!)

The corner arrows are from 'Doodle Parts' also.
Used the checker board border from 'Around the Edge' and then the leaves from 'Doodle Parts' (I love this set!) and finally doodled some veins on the larger of the leaves in white gelly pen.

it's the first time I've done a page so much in Dyan's style, I only one Lucy from her character range, and think it would be best with one of the bigger faces, but there you go, you use what you have!!
