Dots, Circles &.....


Morning gang how are you all?

I can't quite believe another week has flown by and here I am blogging again!!!

So Art Journalling...who's into it?  I love it and the thing I love most is that no-one can tell you its wrong because as long as you have captured what you wanted to then it's 100% right!!!

This has been a page that has taken me a long time, not because I was stuck but because I wanted it to be absolutely right!  I got lots of colour down using the Dylusions Sprays, with really contrasting colours across the page. 

Then my favourite part .... the water reaction!  So using my Bee Crafty Inkables Templates I set about changing the background from the solid panels of colour. So using the Circles from the inkables range I popped it onto the opposite corners and misted through blotting afterwards to lift the colour away.  In the bottom right and opposite corner I sprayed the water onto the template rather than the page and this is how the effect looks entirely different from the same template.

Using the dots I have done the same very lightly in the centre of the page and then inked through with some Black Soot at various places over the double page.  You'll also notice I have done the same with a white pen.  The Border is freehand using the Black from the Wink of Stella pens.

Lastly a white pen.....and my thoughts about what I had done and away I went!!!  In my eyes everything in there is true and reflects exactly how I felt at the time.

Hope you like it
