Courage... Paint Party Friday...

I had some fun with my Niece this morning showing her the Gelli plate. We made a heap of prints on deli paper and some we put on cardstock.. When I got home I so wanted to use some of the prints we made. So I did this Art Journal page.. So just random circles cut out with a circle punch and glued on with the DecoArt Decoupage glue. I just loved the DecoArt Americana Acrylic Purple Pizzazz what a awesome colour. It really pops off the page. I used it on my background over some Sea Breeze. (My favourite colour). Always a good start to start with your favourite colour. For the diamonds, I used the Dylusion stencil and Turquoise Blue with a makeup sponge. Then lots of doodling around with a stabilo pencil and a waterbrush to bring the colour out. Around and around with my Pilot Perma Ball black pen and then little bits of white with the Signo white pen. I even added some pencil around the circles. What a great find in my stamp collection with the doodled triangles. Stamped them in the Momento Tuxedo black. How I had missed that one in my stamp collection, I just don't know. I know that it is going to be a new favourite to live on my desk for a while. It was in a set from Creative called Wonderlust.
