Through the tall window for AJJ

I often think it would be good to be able to see what is going on inside my head 
when I begin to put paint on a journal page.
 This was one of these occasions when stopping was not an issue, the more slapped on the better,
 with no idea what I would think of next.

So lets start with the actual  page.
The base was mop ups and Brusho powder sprinkles, random stamping, a scrape of texture paste and a little silver gilding wax.
The main image  stamps are from Crafters Companion and were water coloured.. I think I realised now that this was a messy fun day, I didn't  have a plan and I think you can tell.

The theme for September at 
 Through the Window.
Time to add some digital alterations, using my Craft Studio program.
So the result, at the top of, is a glimpse through the window, into my chaotic
crafting  mind today.
I will be printing this out and pasting onto the page beside my original.

Thank you for stopping by to see me today. I do always appreciate the comments you leave for me.
