Inky Week 3: Journal 52

"For this week’s prompt, create a page inspired by a conversation you’ve had {or overheard!} in the past week or so. You can paint, draw, doodle, collage – whatever you are comfortable with!"
Sounds  Well, not for me, it had me stumped.  Nothing came to mind (highly unusual I know)  My friend Elizabeth at Altered Book Lover became my inspiration, well HER page did....grin.
I started with a gesso page and added inks (sprays, drips and drizzles) to the point they were just making puddles.

Not being patient enough for the puddles to dry, I grabbed a cellophane package and squished (my terminology)  it on the page .  Rather like the turn out, but a bit on the dark side, don't you think?

A light coat of gesso made it fade a little more to my liking.
Time for texture

I found a die cut crown and then saw this picture and well, the rest is history........or a journal page...LOL!
Thanks for stopping by for a look, hope you enjoyed the quick tutorial on the background.
Have you gotten inky today?
