Purple and Paint Party Friday

Some days you just have to have some purple.. Well that is what I was feeling when I did this page.. It was one of those smoosh pages when you make something else and you smoosh the ink in your journal so you don't waste it. So just lots of purple Crushed grape Dylusions ink. I have made lists of quotes and printed them out on my computer onto a page and was looking at a few of them to pick out just one.. Then I thought hmm. Why cant I have more than one? So I cut them out into strips and then sewed them onto a piece of scrap watercolour paper that I sprayed with Vibrant turquoise. Then well that is where my idea for this page stopped.. Do you get those days where you get so far and then just stop? So looked at what else was on my desk and saw the tags. Butterflies you can never go wrong with butterflies. So I grabbed a Typo stencil and some distress ink and a blending tool and popped some butterflies on the tag.  Stamping is done here and there with Prima stamps and the spots are with a new stamp that I have from Typo.. You just have to have a spot stamp when you see it..  So then I collaged music paper, a strip of the scrap watercolour paper with more spots and a piece of a baby wipe from the clean up.  They always work well in a background and hold everything together well in the sewing machine..  Some folded up lace on the bottom of the tag. So popped some of Tim Holtz washi tape on the page and then glued everything down with Helmar's Tacky craft glue.. 

I am going to post this over at Paint Party Friday and pop around and say hi.. 

There is still time to enter my giveaway. I made a watercolour journal and to celebrate my 3rd blogaversary I am giving it away, if you would like to enter pop on over.

Have a great day
