J52 up up and away

Hi there folks we've had a lovely sunny day here today, don't you feel better when you see some blue sky and sunshine. My project today is a journal page for a change, I've joined the Journal 52 group which is a year long free journalling class,  you can find all the details here, there are so many talented people playing along its a real inspiration!!

Our first weeks prompt was 'Up up and away' and I had loads of messy fun creating my page. The stamps used are from Indigo Blu, Polkadoodles and Chocolate Baroque. I masked the lady, her wings and the rose and created a background with my favourite mask and Maimeri Acrylics using a gelli plate. I added some more colour with distress inks and stamped the lace border with versafine ink. Once the masks were removed I coloured up the images with Graph'It markers and stamped in the smaller butterflies I added ' up up and away' and some trails with a white sharpie pen so they can help my lady fly lol! I have a bit of a block when it comes to writing on projects but at least I've made  a start

I'm also entering this in the following challenges:
Crafty Hands: anything goes
Sparkles: anything but a card
Word Art Wednesday: anything goes

I'm off to grab something to eat and book my place on the sofa as The Voice starts tonight and I can't wait!
Thanks for popping by today
