Journal page - inspired by Michelle

This week it's Michelle's turn back at Paperartsy with some journal pages to inspire us.  Yesterday's was a beauty  I used similar bright Fresco paint colours to Michelle (I tried a different colour scheme but it didn't work how I wanted so will use that for something else!!!)

I've used Limelight, Zesty Zing, London Bus, a very little Guacamole and Brown Shed and Autumn Fire..
I've used stamps from HotPicks 1004, 1006, 1007 and 1203

 I just kept slapping on the paint!
My inks for stamping were archival in black, vermillion and saffron.


I did use the little round stamp that Michelle used because I thought it looked great - and I don't think I've ever noticed it on the plate before!!


do check out Michelle's original on the Paperartsy blog.
