I am happy here!

I was playing with my new Distress oxide inks and after several layer of both DOs and DIs I had a satisfactory background to play with! 

The page didn't take the turn I intended but I became so involved I forgot to take a photo of the page until I had stamped on it with plantlife from two of Elenazinskiart's sets by Paper Artsy!!
I painted them using PA Fresco paints.
I stamped the monster onto card and coloured him with promarkers and cut out the solid bits before stamping him onto the page so I could add the body, hands and feet.
I drew a speech bubble and added the words which really are my own words for wherever I am! 
Finally I outlined all the stamped parts to define them again!
This time I am happy to be 'Out and About' in my garden! Of course I am joining in with Yvonne's theme at Art Journal Journey!

Thanks for looking, Chris
