I will never tire of spending time with my art journals - I can tell you now that there are some pages that will never get posted…for different reasons, some are unfinished, some personal, some disasters, and some that even if I live to be a hundred I would never have time to blog them! 
This page started with some Distress Oxides, some stencilling and some book paper from one of my scrap bags - which led me to finding more scraps to finish it with. The image of the lady is a cut down Crafty Individuals image.
I am joining AJJ again for Gill's theme 'Elegance and Grunge'

Thanks for looking, Chris

I do envy your ability to journal Chris.. if I live to be a 100 I will never fill even one journal!! Lol. Your page is beautifully balanced and I love the way the stencilling seems to bring the whole piece together! Hugs, Anne xx
