J52 Week 3 You always make me smile

Good morning folks, what dreadful weather we're having here? Still its warm and dry in my craft room so guess where I've spent most of the weekend lol. No chance of that today as I'm heading off to work in a minute yuk! My project today is my third page for Journal 52 where our prompt this time was 'You always make me smile'. I'm really enjoying this class and omg there is so much inspiration from Chelle and all the folks playing along.

This was a bit of an experiment as I'd seem this technique in Craft Stamper and decided to have a play. I stamped the Paper Artsy Flowers in Black Archival and painted them with masking fluid. I spritzed the paper and then splodged on loads of twinkling H2Os in shades of blue and purple with a little lime green here and there. I covered it up with cling film and let it dry for a bit then removed the cling fim and sprinkled some salt over the paints and left it to dry completely. I love using masking fluid, rubbing it away and seeing the image pop always makes me smile so it was a perfect technique for this prompt lol. 

The sentiment stamp is also from Paper Artsy, its one of my favourites and is guaranteed to raise a smile. I took a white sharpie pen and drew a squiggly line around the edge and then decided to draw in some grass. I added some journalling to the grasses and my page is finished. Now on to the next weeks prompt which is 'Building Character' eeeek sounds a bit scary but i'm sure i'll have loads of fun.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
One Crazy Stamper: anything goes
Paper Artsy:  Darcy Journalling Month one
 (pop over and have a look, as Darcy has used some amazing techniques on her page this month)
Pumpkin Spice: something shiny
