My First Inky Journal Page & latest 4x6 Photo Love

I have completed my first ever Inky Journal page:
Got a bit carried away with the Inks lol, ended up spraying a bit from each of the Dylusion Spray inks I own lol, but love how it turned out. :) I used Lily Chiver's Edward Scissor Hands Digi Stamp, been dyeing to use some of these digi stamps they are stunning.
I painted Gesso onto bubble wrap and printed it on to the background and then with Black Acrylic paint painted on to the bottom rim of a deodorant can and printed circles in various places.
I stamped a border using the wavy chequered stamp from Dyan's Around the edge stamps. Next time I think I may stamp then go over with a black marker or black paint and then possibly fill the white sections in with white paint or something as It doesn't seem to stand out to well, maybe that's because its on a darker background.
I had a browse on the net to see what quotes were about along the lines of crafting and came across this one that I liked and felt suited:

“Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules,
making mistakes, and having fun.” — Mary Lou Cook

Next up is my layout based on the latest 4x6 Photo Love, I didn't have the page protectors and as all my layouts have been going in to a Pizza Box till I have the funds for another album or two or possibly three lol I decided I would just use one piece of cardstock.
I wanted to use the same paper collection I did for my Nothe Fort Layout as We went to Chesil Beach on our way home, so it seemed fitting that this page would go along side it :)
I would have stayed at this beach all day,
The boys loved it too and it was like a little adventure for them being some where we had only ever drove past. I loved how you could see the sea for miles and the amount of stones there were and the stony hill climb then when you get to the top the sea comes in to view :) It really was a wonderful day :)
I used bits from Echo Park's Little Boy and some bits from Bella Blvd's Mr Boy.

it was so peaceful but very windy so used some alpha stickers to record this fact :)


Thank you for stopping by :)

Oh WOW! That's your first ever art journal page?! It's stunning, hon! Really gorgeous! You should be proud - it's easily as good as anything I see on the blogs of people who've been art journalling for ages. :)

Love your art journal page. The colours are amazing. Love the look of art journalling but can't seem to get the hang of it myself.
