Hi!  I have been working on this journal page off and on today. I work on it and walk away and come back to it.  I started with the cool colors from the Words & Paintery September Challenge and the Vintage Journey - Art Journalling with Tim.   I was inspired to use Tim's stencil in the background using his technique of painting.

 I probably should have waited to photograph until the morning but I wanted to post it up tonight.  The blues are much stronger I just lightened the photo so much it makes it look much lighter in color.

 I started with painting white paint over the Layering Stencil.  I had to wait for that to dry and after it did I then spritzed the orange and blue stain sprays and let them drip down the page. I repeated a few times to get the areas covered that I wanted.

 Then I stamped the compass and  heat embossed with black ink to make it pop. I added a touch of watercolor pencils. 
The handsome gent and boat were stamped on tissue paper and heat embossed using black embossing powder.  I then used the fast finish decoupage to apply the images to my journal page.  That way you can get a clean image with the background seeping through.

Well that is my project for today.  I have a bunch of other half finished projects on my desk from today's explorations I will have to see if I can get something finished with one of them tomorrow!
