Art Journal challenge - Who's playing?

How about a new Art Journal challenge this week? We have not done one for a while.
Gio and Gay even made a couple of samples for you, thank you ladies ;o)

It was a PaperArtsy week, so if you have some of their stamps, it would be fab to use them on your AJ page. If you don't, then don't worry and have fun making a page to share with us.

Are you new to Art Journaling? Click on our Art Journal section for inspiration.

Challenge is open to all countries
and will close on 
Sunday 15th September

One lucky participant will win the following "AJ kit":
1 Tando Creative Mask: sequin waster
1 Dylusion spray: Postbox red
1 Goosebump texture spray
1 PaperArtsy Mini65

Gio used:
PaperArtsy stamps: Minis MN65 and Hot Picks 1006
PaperArtsy Crackly tissue paper

= = = = = = = = = = = = 

 The pages were sprayed with water first then a quick short spray with the Dylusions inks and allowed to dry.
My image was stamped and then I chalked and distressed and layered onto the page. The first layer was black then I did a layer of Versamark ink and used mica powder. I twisted the image. The tiny face I added lace, that was the top of the buildings stamp and the other face has the text fromm the other stamp in the set!

Gay used 
Dylusions inks, Bubblegum Pink and Vibrant Turquiose
PaperArtsy stamps by Lynne Perrella LPC 011
Andy Skinner Gothic stamps

Adding a page by Isa'sArt, you can see on her blog Chouchouland
No PaperArtsy used, Isa drew everything, but it shows you a nice way to use the Aquamarkers

Your turn now... 
Can't wait to see what you come up with

See you on your blogs...
