Art journal cafe (preparing backgrounds)

This was hard work -that  I have to admit !

I don't know how many times I started from scratch...

In the end I realized that I would never finish this page if i didn't stay true to my self. When my husband sees this he will say "typically  you, Lena", I'm sure.

MY colours, MY "drippage" (à la Donna Downey),  MY beloved Dina Wakley stamp and a new mask from Crafters workshop.

The colours are all the brilliant dylusion ink sprays. BUT here is my problem - I can't use them like other people do - I doesn't work for me. Either I don't like the result OR it just looks horrid for everyone. My solution was to smear them on with wet wipes and that makes me happy!!!

This is my entry to Art Journal Cafe.

Hope you all like it!
