Art Journal Friday!

Hi Everyone...happy Friday to you!
I am back to show you a page in my art journal that features a Dina Wakley stamp that is fast  becoming my favourite to work with!
The stamp is "Thoughtful Women" and I cannot stop using it!!
So here is the page out of my Art BY Marlene Journal:

This page started as a paint smear using up left over paint from a previous project. The colours are all Dina Wakley Heavy Body Acrylic in Sky, Magenta, Blushing, Cheddar and night.
I used the Magenta Paint to add random print to the page, through an old Dina Wakley Stencil called "Affirmations"...this added some interest and cohesion to the background.

 I stamped the main focal image onto Dina Wakley's White On White Backgrounds collage Tissue with Archival ink, you can just see the white print peeking through. I then attached it to the page using Gel Medium Under and over the image.
I then went in and scribbled over the image with a Stabilo All pencil and black and white paint pens.

I added some "stitching" by using the Scrap FX "Sewing" rice paper and gel medium in random places and the used a stamp to add more script around the page.
Lastly I used Dina Wakley Gloss Spray in Night and Magenta to add a few splatters and my page was done!
