Mop Ups and Leftovers..

When I was making the cards in the previous post, I spread the leftover paint in two of my journals that I am working in - my little A6 one and the A5 one I used in my late night crafting yesterday.
Here's the results - no step by step photos as I forgot!
 this is the A6 journal, stamps are Kaisercraft and I've accented some of the images with Plum, Hint of Mint and (for a change) Marlin - all watered down to add translucency.
this is the A5 journal, added some grunge paste through the Roman Numerals stencil, and Sara Naumann stamps by Paperartsy in Plum and Library Green archival ink.  Sorry about the photo, the daylight bulb wasn't angled right!

I stamped the "creativity" text on tissue in black archival and glued it with matte medium.

I had to go back and see the cards you made yesterday, and I have to say they are simply adorable. And to think you got two of them from a single page of card stock. and each one was SO different, too.

Then you followed the cards with these two spreads in two journals. Both are gorgeous. I'm really impressed with your stamping and painting abilities. And using your books to mop up the paint is always worthwhile. Really enjoyed these.
