Anything but a Square at Try It On Tuesday!

Our new theme Anything But Square at Try It On Tuesday is about anything you care to make but it mustn't be square (any one my age may remember the saying "Be there or be square" so we hope you will be there!)We are hoping to see lots of different shapes!
I love making Journal pages, I find it relaxing to make something just for me. A lot of my journal pages make it onto my blog but some are just because I enjoy playing and there are so many of them.
This time I have made a tip in journal page, I only had a small journal with me so I used a page from a sketch book I had at our caravan.
I blended pink and lilac Distress inks on my page and then sprinkled some water over the page and dryed it immediately with a paper towel.
I added some stencilling with some mini stencils as I did this at our caravan and only had a few things with me. I had taken Paper Artsy's Elenazinskiart's Monster ZA01 set and a little Zini - I mixed them up a bit to give the girl long legs and removed a hat so that the monster looked more like a pet! I also had some JOFY stamps there too! I doodled in some stars and added some small nail art stars.
I love these stamps and I'm waiting for the postman to bring me one of Elena's new sets!
The words came from a few different book pages - inspired this time by Julie Kirk , although as you know I have always loved using words from book pages!

Hope to see you at TIOT

At first, I didn't care for those little monsters, but the more I see you using them, the more they have grown on me. You certainly aren't square!

Those chalky ice cream colours are so pretty, and I love the layers. Great characters in the foreground too - I can see I'm going to end up succumbing to those Zinski stamps despite how far off they are from my usual sphere!
