Beauty without colour

I'm finally feeling more like myself today. The toothache has subsided for now, and I decided to celebrate by playing in my art journal. This time around, I used the July kit from Scrap'n with Flair and the add-on kit to create the base for my page. I used various papers from the 6X6 paper pad, and distressed them. The Plumeria line by Basic Grey is just wonderfully rich for the summer. Not your usual cute summertime papers. More mature and complex.

I started the page with a pre-painted bubblegum pink watercolour page, and then layered on Dylusions sprays with stencils, then sprayed more Lindy's Starburst spray and Glimmer Mist. Then I layered the rest. The stickers from the kit were the finishing touch, and I layered them on the bottom and top of the page. 

I've loved every minute working with this kit and add-on. With all the delicious papers and lace, it's right up my alley. Make sure you pick up both kits before they are all gone. They are too luscious to miss!

I'm glad I had some time this weekend to dedicate to my art journal and art making. It really gives me a sense of accomplishment and renewed creativity that I need to get through my work week.

I hope that you'll spend some time this weekend to art journal as well. Link me up to your work if you do!

Have a great weekend!

Love the colors on this, Kiki! You mentioned on fb that you made the blue flower from a paper towel...I would love to know how you did that...I have a ton of bits of colorful paper towel that I am saving and have had no luck in the past trying to repurpose them!
