Try It On Tuesday - Summer Blooms

Hello Everyone!

There's a new challenge theme of 'Summer Blooms' over at Try It On Tuesday, and I'm thrilled to be their guest designer for the next fortnight.

Here's the art journal page that I created for the theme.

I created the background and flowers using some of the collage fodder I made recently for Collage Kickstart, and finished with some found text from a book page, and some white ink splatters.

I hope you'll be inspired to pop along to see all of the team's beautiful artwork at Try It On Tuesday, and join in with the Summer Blooms challenge.

Thanks for visiting,
