White Space!

Hello everyone,

This fortnight the theme on the Paperartsy blog is 'white space' you can check out their blog by clicking HERE.

Here is my journal page for this topic which was inspired by the post Anneke did a few nights ago - which you can see HERE.

I created it in my smaller Dylusions journal - I started by grabbing a bunch of random stencils and sponging paint through them. The colours I used were all Paperartsy Frescos in Teresa Green, Granny Smith, Professor Plum, Tangerine Twist and Captain Peacock.

I stamped the flowers which are Kim Dellow for Paperartsy plate EKD01 and the sentiment in black archival.

With the leftover paint from the stencilling I finger painted some circles onto scrap card and stamped the flower heads again and cut out.

I got some brand new Posca paint markers in the post today so wanted to try them out - so I set to adding some doodling and extra bits and pieces to the stenciling with them. Really enjoyed this part and could have gone on for ages but as this topic is 'white space' I thought I had better stop!

I thought the page needed an extra little touch of black so added some faint stamping in black archival using the circles from the same Kim Dellow stamp set as used above.

Then finally added the pop of white in the flower heads by colouring the circles white with a white Posca marker.

Enjoyed creating this bright and cheerful page - much thanks to Anneke for the inspiration :-)

Thanks for visiting my blog today, please do leave a comment so I know you stopped by!
