Bloom and Grow...

Been messing with a journal page for a few days, think it's finished now... maybe!

 I forgot to take pictures early on, but there are a few layers of leftover paint on the page, the uppermost ones are Dusty Teal and Amethyst.
I used the new JoFY stencils - the bullrush with Antarctic and then black archival ink and the Paperartsy numbers mini stamp
 used an old Stickles lid and Eggplant Fresco to make patterns and a black pen to outline round the stencil.
Finished with some double bumping over the words - first with Snowflake and then Little Black Dress again.

A really interesting finish Helen, as first I thought there was a velum overlay.

Fingers crossed for later.

Gorgeous - those large word stencils are simply fabulous, and they look just perfect here amongst the soft colours and beautiful bulrushes.
