Altered Journal - Purple Beauty

Ok, so I finally finished my Purple Beauty altered journal from the other day.  I tried really hard to keep with the purple so this is what I did:

 I put some magenta and purple down

Next I used a stencil and a stamp

I added a wash of blue to tone down the purple, some white and lime green for contrast.

Next came some craft tapes and a quote but it need more......Since I'm gonna be working with owls for the hop, I thought I'd start practicing so I pulled out my Cricut Sentimentals cart and the the owl at 3".

I inked the owl up and placed him on some K&Company Julianne Die-Cut cardstock.

Well, I hope you liked my altered journal :D
