tissue tape, reinker sprays and journal pages.,just for the love of it!

Hi there,
Well here I am and it is not a tag, but another journal page..no 3 and counting!
I made this a while back.
 So this one was made using sprays made from
distress reinkers, tissue tape ,dylusions, distress inks
 and some dylusions sprays to paint leaves...so it is:

I am enjoying the just making and playing and just for me,
 the satisfying thing is that even with only a few pages , i already love my book..of me,
 my art , not perfect, not always great but just me playing for the love of it!
There is no pressure and i am just enjoying the journey!!

So this page started with tissue tape,making sprays in mini misters
from re inkers and then using stencils, snow cap dabber and more.
 Then added dylusions stamps and much more..

I added a heart shape covered with tissue tape and a house stamp.
I added some mini brads for handles and some glossy accents to the windows. The background images were painted with melted chocolate and
 vibrant turquoise dylusions sprays as these stood out!
I am pleased with my little experiment and play with reinkers sprays.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

  3. I love your pages Trace, because the colours are more subdued, it makes you look at all the elements rather than just the colours. The house is fab and the little hearts are just bright enough to demand some attention. All in all, a gorgeous couple of pages. Anne x
