Love me forever

I LOVE Lin Brown's new paint colours for PaperArtsy as part of this latest release. They are rich and vibrant and really evocative of her holiday. I wanted to make a journal page  with a softer feel as it was recently Valentine's Day, and so I used three of the colours (Caribbean Sea, Bougainvillea, Banana) with Chalk to create a softer palette. 
Over the top I added some stencilled images in Distress Ink and some stronger stamped images. I love these new painty rings by Sara Naumann (and my favourite stripes from Ellen Vargo) - I've used them lots already! 
I then added some more stamping courtesy of Emma Godfrey's new stamps as well as images from Mischief Circus. To finish it off I added some painty rings (using bottle caps!) in Caribbean Sea, Bougainvillea and Chalk.
I thought I'd add this to the PaperArsty challenge this fortnight which is Paint themed!
