Artful Blooms journal page

After a very lazy evening and a discussion on twitter with some fellow #patwits about how little we'd all done this evening, I got my second wind and decided to finish a journal page I'd started sploshing some paint on a few days ago.

 I'd been using the new Lin Brown Limited Edition and Chalk  Frescos...
 and took out some of the Ellen Vargo scratchy stamps and more of the Plum and Chalk paints stamped randomly to start with, only it kind of ended up a border!
 and some lighter stamping in the middle
 I decided for my focal point I'd stamp the Lin Brown flower on tissue - I used Library Green and Plum archival inks...
 and painted the back, trying to keep to the painted bits only
before gluing it to the page with matte medium, and then stamped the artful blooms on tissue in black archival .

What was quite a quick page has turned into a late night so I'm off to bed now!!

Oh Helen, this is a fantastic technique. I love how the flower seems to melt into the page with your use of tissue. I'm super impressed. Late night or not, it was WELL worth it.

Love it Helen! That tulip really looks fab against the background. I always seem to get on best very late at night(or even early hours of morning). I'm not sure I can hold out till Donny for those paints. I need them NOW!
