It's possible!

As promised I have another journal page for Art Journal Journey where Erika's theme 'New Year, New Adventure' has been inspiring us all! 
As this may be my last entry for this theme I would like to say what an adventure this has been and what a wonderful host Erika is - a post every day and comments whenever we post - that is a big adventure for Erika too I'm sure!
This was one of those ugly pages in my large Dylusions journal and has been there a long time - I didn't take a photo before I set to with turquoise paint, stencils, doodling and spatters. I came to look for the one I took over a year ago and I just can't find it.
I chose a  TH quote which also represents my chosen word this year - 'Possibilities', which was stamped onto a piece of leftover water colour paper and then I added some TH Words and texture rubs.

Thanks for looking, Chris

The colours and the circles have made a fabulous background. Its good to return to pages and give them a new life.

You've certainly sorted out the "ugly" in this page as the first thing I thought of when I saw it was how lovely were these soft subtle colours.
The birds on the printed paper are unusual too
This is a prime example of why one should not throw artwork on the fire!
Nice words too.

This is a super page Chris. I love the idea of recycling over an ugly page and making something beautiful with it. Thanks for all your support this month and all the adventures you shared with us. It has been an adventurous month for sure and I had a lot of fun. I hope you did too. :) Hugs-erika

What you call ugly, I call lively and full of energy. This is an amazing entry and the way you finished it made me smile. I love how you never stop stamping, stenciling, and doodling. This is a fun end to Erika's theme this month. I really like the colors you chose, too. The lime green and turquoise go so well together. Thanks for sharing this and thanks for all your participation this month at Art Journal Journey.

Gorgeous! If this was an ugly background to start, you really made "a silk purse our of a sow's ear" - lol. I don't know what TH means, but I like your word of the year. The birds are very cute; they look like you drew and fussy cut, but whatever - very cute ;-)

Whatever it looked like before, it was a great background for that inspiring quote when you finished. I'll remember this quote! Thx :)

I so love this Chris, gorgeous journal page. Good choice of TH sentiment too. Just noticed the earlier post that you've been visiting Lincoln so I'm off to have a look at your photos. Happy crafty week, Angela xXx
