Going crazy with colour.....

Scribbly Birds Journal - Dylusions Paint
Hi everyone and welcome to my final project for the CVC project blog. I am leaving the team at the end of October after two great years! 

So for my final project I have gone a little crazy with colour in my journal using a combination of Dylusions and Dina Wakley paints. The background was created by painting in patches with a combination of a brush and my fingers - no great plan... just adding the blue / yellow / green in various places. 
I then added some white paint with a credit card and also through a layering stencil (Splotches.) I also added some background stamping in archival ink.
I die cut some scribbles and splats in white card and sponged some  of the same colours on them adding a little black archival to contrast.
I took a piece of thinner white card and lightly brushed with purple and blue paints - intentionally keeping it light and patchy. Once dry and stamped the scribbly birds and fussy cut.

A quote and some doodling around the page edges finished my page!

I hope you like it!
