"Alice of Hearts" Art Journal Page 7 for Smeared & Smudged!

Howzit Everyone!
Here's my 7th Art Journal page for the week long KICKSTART YOUR ART - Art Journal Every Day challenge with Smeared and Smudged and my Smeared Ink DT piece for this upcoming week!  It's been an intense 7 days but I thoroughly enjoyed expressing myself with my mostly digital j-pages :0)  Thanks to the AJED team for the fun challenges each day!  I'm thrilled with my Alice in Wonderland themed Art Journal and plan to add more pages over time and end up with a nice thick AIW Journal!

Today's Challenge: 
Easy Water Blotting Background

"Alice of Hearts" Art Journal Page 7

The challenge this time is to create an easy water blotting background.  I simply took a piece of white printer paper and hand splashed water at it with my fingers, then took a photo of it with my iPhone, applied an effect filter directly in the iPhone camera app and viola...a really stunning watery background for my j-page!

The thought of water made me think about Alice Through the Looking Glass so I picked this Smeared Ink image of Alice looking at us through the mirror!  It's actually a partial of the Queen of Hearts image I used on Day 2.  A lot of image manipulation, erasing, altering and overlaying took place to create the overall effect and I'm really pleased with it...I think this is my favourite one so far.

In case you missed it, yesterday we also had a Smeared Ink New Image Release blog hop, stop by and check out all the new Smeared Ink digi images and eye candy!

Have a great weekend everyone!
Happy Stamping!
