A journal page....

Hello lovelies!

Something different today, I've made a journal page with Dylusions inks, acrylic paints and a black pen!
I've been looking at a lot of Dina Wakley's work (when I should have been studying, doh!!) and bought her 'Freedom' art journal book, so you can probably see I was inspired by her style.


This is quite out of my comfort zone really, because I usually create order in my craft and rarely manage to have that free-flowing feeling to anything I make (at least that's how I see it!).  I'm hoping to start letting myself relax and see what happens.... :)  As you may also notice, I managed to pop another of those dear little birds in this piece!
I hope you like it, thank you for visiting!  xxxxxx

Oh wow this is just striking and had a beautiful flow in itself. Adore the pink and the doodled stems.
