Mark Making In My Mini Journal

I wanted to craft in my small journal and thought I would continue with the mark making theme.

I brayered the page using Guacamole, Mermaid and Buff. 

Next I used a Paper Artsy Ink and Dog mini brickwork stamp and stamped around the page in Shadow Grey Archival ink.

Next I stamped, coloured and cut out the pussycat (how cute is this image).  I glued this onto the bricks.

The Tim Holtz stamp was stamped in black Archival.

I used a mini JOFY stamp and stamped around the edge of the page.

After this I went to town with mark making!  I drew lines around the border and quote.  I added marks to some of the bricks.  I drew scribbles, splatted paint and I squiggled.  As well as adding words that describe what the quote means to me!

I found doing this page very therapeutic.  It was great fun.

I am submitting this to the Paper Artsy mark making challenge.
