See beyond the imperfections...

Hello everyone and happy Saturday to you!
I hope your weekend is off to a great start.  It's a beautiful day here and I have a full day of crafting planned.  Hubby will be watching the games and I'll be in my craft corner - happy, happy, happy!

Speaking of happy, I have been having so much fun playing with my Art Journal. This is a whole new venture for me and it's kinda hard to just let loose and let it happen, but it's fun to see where the whole thing goes once you do!  So, I'm going to share my 2nd double page layout with you today.  I pulled out my sprays, inks and finally one of my new Prima Doll stamps that I've been anxious to play with.  Here's the end result.....

(click on photo to enlarge)

Material Used:
*Dylusions Ink Sprays - "Bubblegum Pink" and " Pure Sunshine"
* Dylusions Stamp Set - "Around the Edge"
* Dylusions Stamp Set - "The Right Words"
* Various stamps from CTMH
*Prima Doll Stamp
*Atyou Spica Pen
* Copic Markers
* Memento Ink
* Ranger Distress Inks

I love the way these spray inks just blend right into one another.

After stamping the leaves, I lightly colored them in with a Copic marker.
I used a Atyou glitter pen to add a bit of glitter to the center of the little white flowers.

Okay, that's it for me today -time to get up and get busy!  I hope you enjoy your weekend. Have a great one and I'll be seeing you soon!

Until next time,
