I Believe

Awhile ago I was playing with inks and messy backgrounds and created a art journal page:

I started with Dylusions sprays in pink and purple. My hands were pink and purple for a few days! 
 I sprayed the two colors onto the paper overlapping until it was covered.   I applied white paint across the surface. I added a layer of water spritzes and let it  dry.  I sprayed the entire surface with water.I threw a bunch of sea salt on the surface and let that dry.  I scraped off the salt and attached the butterflies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Artistic Outpost - Quote and Quotables  in versamark and heat embossed in white embossing powder.  I also added the Hero Arts Flourish around the edges using the same method. The edges were distressed with a distressing tool.

I love this quote from Audrey Hepburn. I ended up using this for my blog header.

Thanks for stopping by...
