Saturday journal page

I bet you do the washing up with your washing up sponge - I don't ;-)

Sponges make the most fantastic background texture - the best ones are the big yellow car washing sponges with the big uneven holes - they look fantastic.

I covered the page with some border peel offs and sponged a green and turquoise ink over the top - then you take off the peel offs to reveal the pattern. 

The papers are from the cover of the santoro paper pack - I only ever seem to get the left overs these days - so I make good use of them.

The lines are stardust lime green gel pen

Saturday journal page

I didn't forget - honest - I splattered crackle paint through the sequin waste for a new look and it took ages to dry.  It is a really pretty effect though - it was white, but has picked up the Lettuce colour from the Adirondack spritz and has tiny little cracking all over it.  I have the original Adirondack ink sprays - donkey's years old now - you don't get bottles that big now days!

Saturday is journal day

When we were at school- the last day of school we were always given graph paper to colour in pretty patterns.

There you go you see -you never thought that things you did at school would be useful ;-)

Saturday journal page

Saturday has always been my quietest day of the week - so today I have had a good old clear up this morning.  I actually got one of the boxes that was full of bits left over from the move sorted and emptied - only 2 boxes of bits left now - and we have been here 2 years!

This afternoon I got my journal page done.  Izzy always asks me  what I am going to do on the page - and I never really know what I am going to do when I start out - don't think she really understands that ;-)

I have been experimenting with H2Os and spritzing.  A small bottle is defiantly much better than a larger one - personally I find that the Radiant Rain bottles are too big for me - but it could just be that I am working on a very small page and H2O is best made up in small batches.

This one is called ' Set yourself free' - the dolphin is stenciled with my calligraphy ink and the 'sea' is Memento Inks just the side of the Dew Drop pressed on
