April Calendar Journal Page

Hi folks hope you have all survived one of the coldest Marches I can remember!! 
Wow hope April is better!!
Managed to get my calendar journal page ready to start filling in tonight - but only got it finished yesterday evening!! Last minute as always. 
I had loads of ideas during the month of what I was going to do but needless to say when I got down to doing it I did none of them and just make it up as I went along!!!

So I tore some strips of paper to use to mask of the page then sprayed with Dylusions ink sprays.  
The three pages I have done so far this year all seem to have this rainbow array of colours on so I wanted to do something different this month!!!  I thought a nice range of blues would be nice!!! however when it came down to it the hand still landed on the rainbow colour bottles.  Guess its going to be a bright coloured year at this rate!! LOL
I then lifted off the mask paper and sprayed some blobs of colour at the top of the page and let them run.  Then sprayed some mica spray over the top of the first blobs and let them run too!!
I stamped round the edge with this lovely large foam stamp and added the month and year using Tim Holtz new alphabet stamps.
I scribbled the circles in with black pen then went over them with a waterbrush with Dylusions ink in  and added a bit of portfolio oil pastel along the bottom.  A bit of doodling and adding the dates and they were finished.
I added a couple of rub ons for some extra details to finish it all off!!
Ok have to get on with the week now - so wishing you all a happy creative hopefully sunny April!!!
