Journaling again!

Hi there guys;
I've been on a bit of a roll with my journal this last week. I don't know about you but I sometimes think my creative life is a roller coaster ride. For a lot of the time nothing seems to be going on on the surface (I'm working through things in my mind, that's my excuse!) Then I have a period where it all spills out and it all flows. So this week saw my journal getting the brunt of it all with another few pages in my Dylusions Journal..
Firstly, Kiki and Matylda,I'll let you decide who's talking to who.....

 I stamped Kiki onto card and gave her a dress before cutting out. The border on the sides and top was stamped and the base section was printed out from a drawing to create the "ground"
 Matylda is from my sketchbook; again I gave her a dress. All colouring is done with Dylusions inks.
This next one is just a bit of a fun chaotic page. The image on the left is from my sketchbook. The background is masked and inked with Dylusions and then I added strips of different tapes and coloured the edge with Dylusions to create a border.
 I've added a "list" of 10 ways to add creativity to life. I don't do list pages very often but I enjoyed doing this one.

Last one today; a reworking of a page that originally I "messed up" the middle. I persevered however and painted the middle section with a crackle paint. I used my Geometric mask around the edges using Distress ink.
 I added the sentiment and coloured with Dylusions. There's some doodling too.
 The character is from The Prince of Persia. (A book picked up at the 99p store) I love the sense of movement in it.
Hope you like them and hope too that you have a creative weekend ahead. I'm teaching at The Craft Barn on Sunday and am all prepped and packed ready to have fun.
Take care.
