Art Journal Perfect Day

For the UKStampers challenge set by Ephemera this week we had to:
Say what would be our Perfect Day, include a picture on the page and use some stamping.
I didn't have to think about this one at all as my Perfect Day would be spending all day on the beach at Camusdarach and if it was a lovely day watch the sunset over Skye, Rhum and Eigg.
I used Dylusions inks to create the background and then painted the title with white and teal dylusions acrylic paints. I printed out small bacl and white photos of the beach and spattered them with the inks and blended it a little. After sticking them down I used TH Shabby French swirl stamp to stamp with Versamark Turquoise around the page and over the photos. I added journalling using a white sakura Gelly Roll Pen and then stamped a Banana Frog paisley pattern frog with white acrylic paint. I also stamped TH butterflies from the shabby french set in clusters towards the title using red, green and purple stazon inks.
