New Beginnings and new stamps :D)

This months prompt from Dawn's Journal Journey's is
I have new stamps....from Papermania's Chronology collection

(and yes I have just noticed I spelled beginnings wrong :/)

Easy start, as I have gotten into the habit of wiping excess paint from other projects onto book pages

and I also received some new Cosmic Shimmer chalk sprays for Christmas, so I added green ad yellow to blend the page

Over stamped with new stamps and TH Distress Soot black(took ages to dry on top of shimmer sprays so I recommend stazon next time)

In fact it was taking so long to dry that I rubbed most of it off, but as happy accidents go it just faded the images into the page more, which I liked :D
After that it was a matter of doodling with my sakura souffle pens. 

The jounaling reads:

Life is full of new beginnings...
if we only take the time to enjoy a few...
we will find great adventures!

 Relish the Adventure...

Enjoy :D XXX
