Splashes, splodges and smudges.

Yesterday, the postie brought me the Art  Journal magazine [Somerset Studio] ,  the blog candy I was lucky to win  from Astrid.  Her  published article was fantastic and the whole book truely inspirational.
Journaling is something I am just getting started with and I have many, many miles to go and techniques to explore, especially my handwritting.  One thing I did learn as I read the magazine is that there seems to be no rules, so that suits my messy self down to the ground.
So paint at the ready. Nothing vintage in sight.  I gave it a go, its rather bright for me, but hey, its a special time of the year, with the 14th looming closer.  The words on one stamp I used  are, splashes , sploshes and smudges, which just about sums up the state  I was in  when  I finished the page.
There are a couple of challenges that fit these pages-
Just For Fun- the very first theme is Heartfelt Wings
Artistic stamper February challenge- Love is in the Air.
Thankyou for stopping by to take a look., next page I will try harder to be not so messy.
