There are times when being me is...

Hi there,
Well here I am with another play in my journal..this time it was a bit darker in colour as I felt well , less chirpy, full chirp has now been restored...I even braved some writing..not sure that will be back anytime soon..who knows.
So here is my page:

I Had done the background colours using the fab dylusions sprays a few days before and added stamp detaill using dylusions stamps and highlighted with White pen.The edges were coloured with black soot distress ink and some was added to tone down the colours in places ...I added a Dina wakely, one of my new stamps from artfromtheheart..
Overall I think i am plaeased with the overall page ..I am loving building up the backgrounds and enjoying learning new things on every page..some that will are..well i dont think i will do that again moments!!but all part of the journey!!
The theme for Sunday stampers with the fab Hels is circles,..so I am entering this..
I am entering this for the following comeptitions:

thanks for stopping by!
have a fab, fun and inky day!

I love the moody colours on your pages and I think that is the great thing about journalling, you can really 'express' how you feel - maybe I should try it again.......I really want that Dylusions circle stamp, oh and of course the Dina Wakely one, my wish list gets ever longer. Glad you are back to full chirp! Anne x
