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.................................


  1. ooh love this one, Lin! the script on the tissue is just inspired to tone down the whole page.

  2. Fabulous journal pages Lin! I love how you muted the colours with the tissue...brilliant idea and so effective! Lovely use of pastes as well as sprays and that quote is beautiful. I second your comment about it ;-)!
