Journal page inspired by Linda Cain - for Paperartsy

We saw a wonderful journal page from Linda earlier this week at Paperartsy. You can see hers here

I bought a new A6 - teeny tiny for me - journal yesterday and was itching to find time to play with this challenge, luckily being so small it didn't take too long!

 I used Dolly Mix, Guacamole and Lake Wanaka for my background
 and Snowflake to stencil the flower which I then outlined with a black fine nibbed pen..
I added some stencilled bubbles (the new colour, Marlin which is gorgeous!) and stamped the JoFY mini flower, which I painted in Amethyst.  I stamped the dotted line border round the page (from JoFY26) and round the edge of the text (from the same set) which I cut in half, I painted the words with Amethyst too.

Entering the Paperartsy challenge here 
I'm away for a crafty weekend with friends, been a bit of a travel nightmare, but we'll get there! See you soon.

I love this, and the tiny-ness of the book...wow, will that end up a challenge in itself I wonder?
