A colourful mess !!!!

Another day and another challenge and a big welcome to more followers - great to have you here!

It is a bit of a mess! but I had fun experimenting with three pots of Dr. Ph Martin's Bombay inks which I mixed with water and used as if they were watercolours.  I love the vibrant colours : Magenta, Teal and Aqua. Not for the faint hearted.  

I left myself a journalling square in the middle of the page and didn't know what to do with it, so I tried a bit of doodling and hand wrote a quote I found during the week which I rather liked.  It doesn't quite match the page, and I am not sure about the gold, but I am in an experimental stage with my journalling!

I am entering this into the current Artful Times Challenge which is stencils and masks.  Again Von and Neet have done two great pieces and there are some lovely entries, all very different.

I hope I am not bombarding you with posts this week!  One more big exciting one to come on Sunday but there might be one on Saturday too!

Oh, beautiful, Jennie - I've got some Bombay Inks and really haven't explored them properly yet... this is so pretty, and I love the free space for the lovely sentiment in the centre.

Love it! Those colours are the ones I once had to work with in polymer clay with the great Lindly Haunani and I fell in love with the mix then.
Love those circular flowers (did you doodle those) on the right hand side - in fact I love the whole thing.
Thanks for joining us at Artful Times - Hugs, Neet (sorry I am so late) xx
