Playing with Dylusions Spray

I've been playing around with Dylusions Spray ink lately, and they are fuuuuun - here's why.  You spray around a stencil and let it dry, then come in with a wet brush and smoosh it around, and it is so gorgeous.  

It wins the easy-fast-gorgeous contest hands down.   I later decided there was too much white and smooshed around with a wet brush some more....

 ... the parts left white really pop now.  Ready for writing, yay!

Beauty is in the eye...

This is a recent art journal page - I had to use this amazing old photo I ran across...

I'm not going to blur out the journaling, because I know everyone feels this way now and says " All the ways that I feel NOT ENOUGH ~ not pretty enough, not thin enough, not young enough, not fit enough ~ I know it's COMPLETE BOLLOCKS but it still creeps up on me & whispers in my ear sometimes: just no."   Even as a fairly confident woman, I deal with those feelings once in a while.

There's a lot of pink shimmer on the page that doesn't scan well, and the "Beauty" title is done in sparkly black pen.  One of these days I'll figure out how to scan sparkle/reflections.
Thanks for stopping by!

Journaling on the go

This is a page I did when I got back from the Spellbound event; while I was there I wrote on some plain paper that I could tote in my purse, and later I wrapped the pages in a piece of stationary from the hotel to make a little booklet...

Here's the finished page in my journal-

The wonderful vintage postcard of the Langham Hotel was given to everyone by a sweetheart who attended - the pink is the journaling booklet, and that's also the keycard to my room  in the pocket.

Sorry to be so late, and so random in posting; thanks for checking in here!  Hope you have some time to make a little something  =)
