Whatevers Round 2 -6 (Journal Page)

Hello.  I am back.  I have taken a VERY LONG vacation from uploading to this blog but now I am back.  And, as you will notice, I have shifted, yet again, my passion.  These days I have been dabbling in art journaling.  I love it and it allows me to work through and manage the stress of a busy life.  I still do some scrapbooking and the occasional card, but I will likely be posting about art journaling more than anything else.
Today, I am uploading this page I created for the Whatevers Round 2 #6.  If you have not heard about it you need to go check out Nat Kalbach's blog and read about it.  I think it is a lot of fun and have played along before but never uploaded until now. 
Had so much fun on this page.  Started out with splats of distress stains, added script stamping, then lemon zest ink spray from Dylusions. Added some modelling past over the Mini Tiny Circles stencil by Balzer Designs.  The stencil had leftover red ink on it which ended up making a cool colour pattern on the modelling paste!.  A bit of brown distress ink and some turquoise paint splatters finished off the background.
All of the additional paper embellishments are from a Kaiser Craft package called Tigerlilly.  I also added some strips of fabric that had white gesso added. 
Off to do another page.
