Art Journal Flower Power at Southern Girls Challenge

So another challenge is up and at em over at SGC, and this fortnights challenge is to use flowers on your project.

I have been a bit naughty this week as this art journal is actually a page in a journal for a swap.  I am not supposed to share it yet but since I organised the swap I guess I can break the rules ;)

I have used Bonnie Bookworm image by Oddball Art Co who are our sponsors for this challenge.

I coloured the background with mists then stamped with a kaisercraft flower stamp and a letter background stamp from Hero Arts in Stazon.  I coloured the flower stamps with prismacolor pencils to pop them a bit.  The image was painted with reeves water soluble pastels then touched up with prismacolor pencils.  I added a border, which has been slightly cut off in the photo, with a set from dylusions called write between the lines.

Thanks for dropping by my blog :)

I would like to enter my page in the following challenges.....
Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamps - Anything Goes (background stamp is HA)
Kraftin Kimmie - Anything Goes
