Journal pages...

I've a couple of journal pages tonight, both very different...I've been messing about with them for a couple of days..

Streaks and dabs of paint, leftover from other projects.. Antarctic, Space Cadet, Bora Bora, watered down and dry brushed in varying degrees.
Added some scraps of script-stamped on tissue paper, blending it in with more paint.

Grunge Paste mixed with Pea Coat, through a stencil, letters stencilled and the whole page knocked back with a light mix of Nougat, which dulled it down too much so I then covered the whole page with Satin Glaze.
Added some Paperartsy Mini stamps, the fish is with Watering Can archival, the feather Potting Soil and the head, black.
This page started with Antarctic paint over the whole page, then while it was still wet, added some Space Cadet.
Took the Paperartsy Mini (it's a JoFY one from her latest release) and stamped it all over the page, in Cornflower Blue archival. Stamped the Lin Brown tulip in Fern Green and Red Geranium inks. the butterfly is stamped in the Orange Blossom archival, the flourishes Watering Can.

You have been busy! Really lovely pages - such gorgeous blues! I wish I had Space Cadet and Antarctic. They are definitely on my list because you can never have too many blues! Julie Ann xx

Very different I agree Helen but both equally fab! My personal favourite though is the first set. Love the quirky images you used ;-)
