No Worries, Just Play......

I Had some friends over today and we went crazy with the gelli plates. There was paint and paper flying all around the room and "oh," so fun!!
None of us were worried about what we created, we just let it flow and it was really nice not having to "think" about things for awhile. It's always nice getting together with friends too.

Check out all the yummy goodness I made:

It's like playing a game of eye spy. 
I decided that today I wanted to use some patterned paper. I have so much paper in my stash and I thought it would be cool to play with paper that already had something on it. 

One of my friends was so sweet and brought me a belated birthday gift and she got me some Dina Wakley stencils and a Donna Downy template. I just had to break out my Dina Wakley stencil and use it on this page. When I first made this background I didn't really like it but my friends insisted that it was wonderful. After I looked at it for awhile I decided that I wanted to use it for a journal page. I cut up my orange background page in a few circles and glued them on the right side and added a dot of green and white paint to them. Outlined them in black to make them pop. I added the saying that I did because that is exactly what we did today, no worry, just played.  I love how this page came out and I'm so glad my friends loved this background because I really love it too.
