Linda-inspired Painty-Stampy-Journal Page!

Linda Cain's final project for her stint at Paperartsy, was a glorious journal page.

I decided to do mine, in my moleskin journal, which is smaller - I think Linda used a Dylusions journal.

I did use many of the same colours of Fresco paint, though as I loved the choices, and they looked great - but took different stamps from my Paperartsy box (which is overflowing now... I can't stop adding to them!)

 Base painty layer including spray and drippage...
 masks and stamping done (I thought I had taken some after stencilling and before stamping... but seemingly not)

The little blue dots are in Bora Bora (what a great colour!)
added white scribbling round some of the numbers, and the blue dots.


 final step like Linda, was some brown stamping - but I took a Mini script stamp.



and this is the start of a new page - with all my mop-ups of spare paint!! Wonder where this will go from here!

I'm off to link this in the Paperartsy challenge!

This is so great! The face is fantastic. I think I saw it on the PA blog and so wanted to buy it - it just goes so well with your colours and layout. Lots of luck with the Paper Artsy draw. Julie x.

What an astonishing page, Helen... the background is already pretty cool, but then the amazing stamping takes it to another level altogether - stunning work!
