More mixed media June challenge: purple

This is my design project for More mixed media June challenge where the option this month is to use purple - this is my favourite crafting colour, so I loved this challenge. Please click on the link to see the wonderful crafting of the rest of the team. We hope you will join in our challenge - you don't have to use pink, that's optional ... just create a mixed media design.

This is a journal page with a background more with Caran d'arche Neocolor II water-soluble wax pastels, softly blended with a baby wipe.I used various distress inks in blues and purples with a stencil with dots and another with flowers, also stamped one of my favourite Penny Black stamps 'sparklers' and the Judy-kins face stamp. The words were generated on computer, printed and coloured with spectrum noir alcohol pens.

This is also for:
