A Happy...

 
Accident. I first created my background using some scrappings of matt medium, once dry inked up and a splat or 2 of water. The accident... I tipped my pot of water so I got more than a few splashes. But I liked the way it turned out anyway!

 
I spent some time drawing and colouring my focal image to add to my page. Then went back to my background, using the same coloured ink I did some stenciling. Also a splash or 2 of Picket Fence Distress stains and some stamping with it too. More stamping with black and some washi tape finished my page. A voyage of creativity...so the sentiment I chose was perfect!
 

 
I created this page with the following challenges in mind Fall Fearless and Fly Challenge 8 and Art Journal Journey with the theme Crowns.

  20. Beautiful page! Love that little oh-face, the colours and the use of washitape. So, lesson to be learnt here - don't cry over spilled water! Accidents are sometimes really meant to happen, you know. Love it!
