Journaling again and Lovin' it!

Hey Everybody, how 'bout another page in a Journal just for fun???
This spread is done in the smaller Journal from Dylusions. I LOVE this size!!!
 The Stencil is from Terri Stegmiller called Layered Salad S111. It is perfect and you get great bang for your buck with all the different layers. VERY cool!
I started with lots of bright colors from the Distress Inks that I added with the Ink Blending Tools.

Then I added the Stenciling with darker Distress Inks, Broken China, Dusty Concord and Seedless Preserves around the edges of the pages.
I used the fine tip end of  Distress Markers to trace bits of the stencil around the interior of the pages.
  The Numbers here are stamped using Tim Holtz's Numeric set and Jet Black Archival Ink.
The shadows make the numbers really stand out!!!
The lighter stamped images break up the darker colors.

Shadowing is one thing I love to do to images. This part of the Stencil just fascinated me..
I ran it along the bottom and continued it across to the other page.
 Ink and the Dog Mini stamps from PaperArtsy 22, 48, 56 and 74 are also used around and through the stencil.
White and black pen marks are added here and there as well.
Hope you enjoyed this and it inspires you to create a page of your own!
