A is for...

...Aqua and Art Journal. Over at Simon Says Stamp this weeks challenge is A is For

I pulled out several Distress Inks, some acrylic paint, and a few Dylusions Spray inks all in an aqua color. I used watered down acrylic paint as my first layer allowing it to drip down the page. After that was dry I applied the Distress inks to the background through several stencils. Next I splattered some ink onto the page. The final layer on the background was some white gesso applied through another stencil. 

Next I layered some patterned papers and my photos. I added in an inked up tag and my title. The pictures are my family getting together to coloring eggs. I made the mistake of getting glitter this year and it was everywhere. I must say we had so much fun despite the mess - hence the title :) 

This is a look at my planner page from the week. I used Distress Ink and water for the planner and then added in my journaling and photos from the week. 

That is all for now. I hope you enjoyed my post. As always thanks so very much for stopping by.
