So dreamy..........

Hello all!
just popping in with another page from my mini art journal and tying it in with the current challenge at Stampotique which is to use a splat of paint.  I couldn't resist this one as it's one of my favourite methods of creating a background in this little art book of mine.  For this page I splattered and smooshed acrylic paints around, adding some faint text from a rubber stamp and printing the word "dream" with paint and foam letters.  The image is 'Jasmine' by Jo Capper-Sandon, which I stamped and coloured with Copics and then fussy cut and stuck her to the page - I then added a few painted blades of grass and a couple of Cameo cut and painted flowers.  She looks totally wrapped up in her own thoughts, whatever they may be......


I do enjoy playing in this art journal as it really doesn't matter what I do - no rules!!  I would also like to enter this in the challenges at Through the Craftroom Door , Simon Says Monday challenge 4 Crafty Chicks , Craft Stamper and Delightful Challenges.


Thanks for stopping by to take a look :)

This is just beautiful, Dawn. First, I don't think I have ever seen anyone create black hair for Jasmin, and I absolutely love it! You have so beautifully given her life with your perfect shading. A masterpiece, for sure!
