Angel page

I've been playing in my journal (and not much else really)but have wanted to join in again with Dawn's Journal Journeys challenge, which this month is Choose a word.
 I stamped this Lost Coast image(Eraser angel) onto a page that I had made some time ago - didn't like it so splashed on some white acrylic paint before using some Kaiser craft background stamps and splatters of distress stains. She is coloured in using distress markers and my Inkessential white pen.
It was only when hubby was throwing away a pen catalogue and I spotted the huge pen photos that I got the idea for the rest of page! I scratched off some of the print and wrote on the handle before writing around the pen about the peace that believing in angels brings! I wrote the word PEACE and then stamped the dictionary meaning from the Lost Coast peace stamp and then parts of it randomly over the page! 
Thanks for looking, Chris

I like how you have adapted your original idea, I am sure it was fine as it was, but if you're not happy then you have to sort it don't you?

I love the pen idea lots! Ian't it fun how inspiration can hit us when we see something. I do like your page very much. I particularly love that feeling you get when at first a page doesn't feel right and then we work it and it becomes so satisfying when we can sit back looking at it, pleased we continued. it was well worth the extra effort. Thanks for playing with journal journey's this month :)Dxx
