Womans Face over Painted Background

I absolutely LOVE this journal page! I had done a background a while back. I wasn't thrilled with it, but last night I added the face to it and painted the black around it, added some highlight and WOW! Now it's my new fav! Thank to Jule Fei-Ban Balzer I tried this technique and was successful! I owe this page to her daily blog e-mail.

Don't Wait for Someone to Bring You Flowers - Journal Page

I had SO much fun making this page last night. I used 3 acrylic paints (orange, teal and yellow) and scraped them onto the page with an old credit card. Then used my fingers to smear some of the paint. I then applied some of the same paints to a piece of bubble-wrap and pressed it onto the page in a random fashion. The flowers and stems were from a card-making kit I had made up for a friend who used to babysit so she and the kids could make cards for the parents. The circles that adorn some of the flowers are from a bag of quilling materials I had in my stash of craft goodies. I added some white circles on the dots with a white gel pen and then wrote the message on the stems. If you look closely you'll see the words "DON'T WAIT" on the petals of the large flowers.
