I used PVA to seal the page then inked it in varying shades of blue. What doesn't show in the picture, is that I used a paper doily to ink over in the bottom right corner and stamped the rest using inked bubble wrap. I stamped the 'Sitting Pretty' stamp from Charmed Cards and Crafts onto white card, coloured her in blues using brush markers, then cut her out and stuck her on top of the doily. Words cut from a magazine were glued and the whole lot inked over using walnut ink tintz. Looking back on the piece of work, I'm not sure that was a good idea, but hey-ho, I'll learn slowly. Finally, I added extra words using a Sharpie pen.
I've decided that where I can, this art journal is going to be used as an inspirational piece of work, so that if I get low days I can look at it and be uplifted again.
