more sprays and a journal page

Having another play around with sprays this time in my journal which has been neglected lately. I used Andy Skinners sprays in yellow red and turquoise. When they were dry they looked a bit too bright so I took a thin piece of tissue and stamped some script in black archival ink. When this was dry I covered both pages with it.

Next I die cut some hearts, an arch and some wings from ramdom dies. I also picked up some bits and pieces laying around on my desk and painted them all in black. I used black texture past on some, grunge on some of the other pieces and some white crackle paint. when all the pieces were dry I sprayed them with perfect pearls and let it dry puddled in all the little nooks and crannys.


I chose my quote: No Beauty shines brighter than a good heart...how true is that and I am very lucky to have quite a few beautiful people in my life.

Everything was stuck into place and I went around some of it with my pitt big brush pen (love these pens!)
I am entering this into the paper artsy challenge which you can pop over and see here..it's worth a look as there is some great inspiration over there!

Thanks for stopping by.................................
