Journaling round up.

Hi there folks
I've been trying to catch up some pages in my journals again. I tend to to get carried away on backgrounds sometimes so periodically I have to slow down and finish some. I know that doesn't suit some people's way of working but it suits me sometimes, and especially in a class there is not time to finish everything off.
So here is the latest round of pages (Lots of photos warning)
First page to share. Background is Dylusions inks, masks and ghosting.
 The sun stamp is from De Stempelwinkel.  I cut the letters out of card that I had stamped my backgrounds onto.  Coloured with Distress Markers and Dylusions ink. I've used my hatched border stamp too around the edges of the pages.

 Then next we have this page. I left the image un coloured as I thought it went rather well with the psychedelic colours and the mushrooms!!!!!!!

 Again I've used my stamps to create a different border and there's a bit of faux stitching which you can't really see too well in the picture.

 This next page is definitely number 1 for me today; I'm really pleased with it! It's fun and quirky. and I just think the quote is brilliant!

 I can't help wondering, is Mr bowler hat the artist and Mr top hat hiding from him; or is Mr Top hat  the artist waiting to pounce onto the unsuspecting Mr Bowler...... What do you think?
 I love the combination of bright and muted colours and the tuckaways and pockets
 See, a place to hide your "dangerous" thoughts LOL!
Right, I can see your eyes beginning to glaze over so I'll stop there for now. Enjoy the evening and I'll catch up later!

Gorgeous pages Neil, love how bright & colourful each of them is. Plus you've used a stamp I saw on Mark's site & have added to my "want' list. More now I've seen you use it too haha. Love your style, I envy your free artistic and creative designs. Have a great week. Pxx

I think they're both keeping an eye on YOU, Neil, as the dangerous artist!! Brilliant quote, I agree... Fabulous pages, and like Paul, I'd already spotted that stamp over at Mark's and thought how amazing it was - you're neither of you helping with my spending resolution!

Bwahahahahaha !!! LUV the one with the two Gents Neil. The look on Top Hat's face there just made me laugh.... definitely looks like an ambush to me :-D LoL
