A Face in Time for AJJ

A rather busy colourful page from me today and 
a  good excuse to use this Stencil Girl face and a liberal amount of Black Soot distress ink.
My quote choice today is............
'When someone shows you who they are,
believe them the first time.'

A background  painted pale green with water colours,   then while it was still wet I sprinkled on some green and red Brusho powder and let nature take its course. I did a little random stamping [ another nameless stamp]. Next stamped out a number of clock faces and set too to fussy cut them out. I can tell you it was much easier to stick them down.

10 days have passed already for the August theme, 'Time '.
 Art Journal Journey
