Art Journal page using what is lying on my desk.

I have been neglecting my blog and crafting as work and family commitments and a summer cold have kept me out of my crafting room for weeks. I finally had time today to finish the last of my recipe cards (overdue) and decided to make a start on my art journal pages. I have fallen behind in the prompts. I set myself the challenge of only using what was out and lying around on my desk whilst I tackled these pages. Not so hard if you could see the state of this room. I have to step over piles of paper, ink, embellishments and general mess just to make it to the computer and there is little room on my desk. I convinced myself that by using up what was on my desk I would be starting to tidy up...
The prompt asked us to use a recipe and journal about food loves and hates.
This page already had paint splats of red and yellow from another page in my journal so I sprayed with Dylusions inks and masked some areas with cupcake shapes. The laminated recipe card was a spare from the recipe swap so I just added some ink and a piece of ribbon from my desk. The stamped cupcakes had been water coloured and then I added a very thick layer of Crackle Accents. I had made these for the recipe swap but felt they were too grungy for the cards. I stamped some more random cupcakes and added my journalling. The cupcake stamp was on a free sheet from a magazine but not sure what. That is something else I have to sort out. I feel much more relaxed. Now if I could only stop sneezing every where with this dratted summer cold life would be perfect.
