Paint Party Friday

Hi you all! Time flies by faster each week, and once again it's time for Paint Party Friday, hosted, as always, by Kristin and Eva.
I have made some more journal pages. This time I used brown and gold to do the background, and added some wild stamping which I white embossed. I have used three of my spirit dolls that I made this week, and added the quote as these all look like strong ladies to me! This is a completely different colour scheme for me, and I am not sure if I like it, but I wanted to try something different. I am also linking to Art Journal Journey. The theme is to challenge yourself, for which I used different colours.






This piece was the result of trying to remove an alcohol ink spill. It didn't go away, so I just kept blowing more across the paper, and watched it react with the colours that were already there. It was fun, and I can use it for die-cuts or backgrounds.


Here's wishing you all a good weekend. Take care, have fun and thanks for coming by!
