Journal play - just for fun

I've finished the very pink journal page I had part done on the WOYWW post from last week
but not without a false start.

 I had dribbled Fresco paints as shown...
not sure which the palest is I used - Dolly Mix I think, then Rose possibly, Orchid and Bougainvillea for sure.


and spread them with a plastic stir-fry spatula I rescued from the kitchen as it hasn't been used for it's culinary purpose for ages and was in the way in the utensil pot...
although this did merge them a bit too much,

so I added more pinks and snowflake, and dragged the colour with a credit card (an old one!)


that's where it was on Wednesday, although I had added some black stencilled numbers but not got round to photographing..

Earlier this afternoon, I stamped the Lin Brown daisy and added some other Fresco colour to some of the petals - my intention was to block out the background as Leandra had done in one of her periscopes but didn't like the flowers... so I started again over the top first with gesso, then re-did the pink - and turned it into a 2 page spread
Instead this time I just used the daisy stencil and the little stones stencils across the bottom of the page, and some leaves at the top stamped in black archival ink.
 used my white sharpie to outline the daisies
 and stamped the "daisy" from stamp set, writing in the rest of the words ....

using my fudeball pen

It is very pink, but I love the bold silhouette stencil and stamping against it.

Thanks for looking  - totally different to the earlier page for Wanderlust, I think you'll agree!

Like be the pink - can't believe I just wrote that but the contrast of the black on the pink is just fab!

Yep, it's VERY pink, but I like it against the black. I think this is a great color combination and lovely composition.

Love your page and think it looks a bit like Aborigine art with all those dots. I've been browsing through previous pages and I'm well impressed. That £D dot stamp is so effective and you've made great use of it.
