Embrace imperfection...

Hello fellow Crafters,

Last month I won $10 worth of Lost Coast Design Stamps in their Challenge. So I used one of them for this art journal. I enjoyed making this.

The pages were painted with PaperArtsy Fresco Paints in different shades of yellow. I then looked in my stash and found a piece of paper that was coloured with purple and yellow Distress Ink. So I decided to use a die and cut it up. Next I shuffled the pieces around on the paper until I liked it and then glued them down. I did some background stamping and then went over to do the main image. She is called 'Head in hands'  and is from Lost Coast Designs and I think she is lovely. She was stamped with purple Distress Ink on a bit of book paper that didn't have any text on it. I doodled around the image and stapled it onto some corrugated cardboard. I did the same to the sentiment, which I stamped with black Archival and is from a Tim Holtz set. The butterflies on the left trellis are from VLVS! I stamped them on the book paper with black Archival ink after I coloured it with purple Distress ink. The last thing was a doodled line around the pages. 

Thanks for stopping by ! 

Hope you like it....
