A weedy journal page

I love Yvonne's theme this month at Art Journal Journey - 'In my garden there is'. My caravan garden often has very large weeds in it as we don't always manage to do any gardening while we are there!!

I started this page with a much darker colour but decided I didn't like it so covered it with some Paper Artsy Fresco paint ( Bora Bora, Hyde park and Wisteria)by putting blobs of paint and blending with an old 'credit card'.
I added some blobs of Pearl Glaze and some sprinkles of Royal Blood Infusions and used the credit card again.

I stamped some patterned stamps and blotted them and also used ink through some stencils - again blotted, before using a heat tool to dry them off properly
I stamped the Lin Brown Paper Artsy ELB22 flowers and teasles using black Archival ink and left it to dry before adding some white pen.
The sentiment is one I bought at a show and sad to say don't know whose it is!

Thanks for looking, Chris

I always dream BIG ♥ ... I have bad eyes, so I wouldn't actually see in my dreams if everything was small ;-)
Lovely weekend to you and your loved ones ♥

Love the little white flowers. They really pop on the page. What white pen do you use that doesn't turn slightly the color of the background? Hugs-Erika

Gorgeous background with such depth and the flowers look great. Love how that white doodling brings them to life.

Garden certainly is a wonderful theme that Yvonne has chosen.

If my garden's weeds looked like that, I would be a very happy camper. Really lovely journal entry, Chris.
