A journal page

Hello lovelies!

I actually got my journal out today, I haven't tried to do anything in it for ages! I was alerted to these fabulous Donna Downey Poppies by Eileen Godwin, and I just had to have them because poppies are my favourite flowers. I started with a Distress Stain background and stencilled over using the pretty Maidenhair Fern stencil from Designs by Ryn, and Donna Downey's Hollyhock stencil. I'm really pleased with this page and hope you like it too!

Thank you for visiting, hope you are having a fab weekend! Xx

Thank you ladies for your lovely comments! I dribbled Tombow pens on the stamps and spritzed with water before stamping onto card. The pens give these amazing vibrant colours! Xx

Hey Wendy, I'm really liking how you used the same colour for the background stenciling. Makes for a nice cohesive backdrop for those vibrant poppies. Icelandic poppies are some of my favourite flowers. Nice piece! Many thanks :) xo
