PDCC146 playing with ink and paint on a wet bank holiday Monday!

Why does it always rain on bank holidays?  Or does it just feel like it does?!  It didn't really bother me, I spent yesterday clearing out the cellar and having the odd break to play in my journal :)


This week's colour challenge over at the Play Date Cafe is a colour splash, my favourite!


I knew my Dylusions spray inks were in the cellar and was very pleased to find them in the midst of my clearout!  And equally pleased to spot a lime in there, perfect for this challenge!


So I splodged some india ink onto my gessoed page, then laid a piece of paper over it and brayered to squidge it some more.


A bit of stamping, courtesy of Stampotique's Journey Collage, was followed by a squirt of ink through some Tim Holtz sticky letters (only I use them as a stencil lol).

I am so crazy in love with this background you made, it's awesome, really awesome. It doesn't hurt any that those are one of my very favorite color combinations. But other than that, the way you did the background and how it falls on your pages.......wow is all I have to say.

I really love the raw artistic feel this has-it's gorgeous! It looks like it should be on a canvas and hung on the wall in a super contemporary studio apartment! Love it :)
