Just playing - journal time

Hi, I was drawn to playing in my journal today, just for fun - haven't done that for ages!   I used the A4 Seawhite, with it's lovely heavy paper and for the first time in absolutely ages, my Dylusions sprays - took the turquoise , fuschia and white linen.
I blended and spread the sprays with a brayer before spritzing with water and brayering a bit more (hence the crease in the page!)

 Then I used one of Lin Brown's stencils and Snowflake Fresco, the sprays kind of come through, being waterbased, I added a bit of Dolly Mixture on the blooms, and Seaweed on the stems.
 used plum archival ink and the mini text stamp (MN75) through the stencil

 and one of Lin's flower greetings in the corner.

Lovely colours, the Dylusions strong hues give a nice fresh feel to the page.

What lovely colour blending, and I love how the flowers emerge in that slightly ghostly way - beautiful!
