Tiddly Journal Again

Have you made your entry for Tiddly Inks - #65 Art Journal Challenge? You still have time. I decided to give the art journal challenge another go and whipped up this creation using Lili Lolita. I blurred out my journaling below YOU and inside Lolita's banner.

If anyone knows of any Art Journaling Challenge Blogs, please let me know ;D Thanks.

Admittedly, I coloured this image for another upcoming challenge for scanning, but I didn't want it to go to waste. The only other concept I had for this page was to attempt an argyle frame. Everything else was just free flow. I DO enjoy the process with these, I don't have to think as much just use my visual brain so to speak.

I wet brushed a sheet of torn watercolour paper, then brushed over it with various colours for the background.. Behind the frame I stamped with a SU - spots and dots background set and dry brushed on pink paint with a stiff brush.

The edges were hand doodled and I stamped on SU - Mixed Bouquet (circle flowers) with black Memento ink, imitate doodling in more circles around the frame and bottom sentiment

The frame is SU - Feels like Spring blocked on cardstock four times then I cut to size and cut out a frame opening. I over the argyle with water colour then distressed the edges with various inks and chalk pads, finally outlining it with a black ZigZag marker.
