Journal page

Finished journal page.
For the back ground I've used Dylusions spray inks London Blue, Lemon Zest & Cut grass.
I made my own circle stencil & used paperartsy white acrylic paint with my stencil. I'm pleased that it worked out ok. I then drew roughly round the circles with a black pen.
With a script stamp from paperartsy I stamped over the page to add a little more interest to my back ground.
To finish my page I used the Dylusion board stamps around the edges.
The rest of the stamps used are Dylusions stamps again & I've really gone to town mixing different part from the stamps to make my image.

Its that time of the week when we all get together  from around the world to share what we have on our work desks. If you'd like to find out more then hop over to Julia's place  to join in the fun.
So here is my desk which has been like this since Monday evening. I had all good intentions of finishing of my journal pages yesterday but dear husband had the day off  so we trimmed the hedge & went into town .
Top of the desk is  box of acrylic paints & a tag i had started, two wooden screens to decorate which i've had for a while so i thought if there on my desk i'll get round to doing something with them.
Middle of desk is a Dylusions stamp which has been stamped a few times on some paper ready to be used on my journal pages .
Bottom row are my journal pages & some more Dylusions stamps.

The paper with the stripes is from College Press & went really well with my photo's. The stamps used are Paperartsy,  Paper Mania Chronology, & studio G.

My tag started of a piece of white card which was then covered with acrylic paints.
I run it through the big shot with a Tim Holtzs embossing folder.
I then went over the tag with a Rangers ink pad.
I used Tim holtzs Floral die to cut the flower from card & cloth.
The lady is a stamped image given to me by one of my crafting friends & the umbrella is from a Dylusions stamp.
The Washi tape is something I've made myself from masking tape which was something else my crafting friend showed me. Her blog is here
The pointed frill was cut by hand using a piece of cloth that was wrapped round an atc that was sent to me from Janet & a card which read i challenge you to make something from this piece of cloth.
So Janet thank you so much for sending the cloth & for the challenge & i hope you like what i've done using the cloth.
