Step Away From the Wild Honey Distress Stain!

I think I may have gone overboard on the Wild Honey Distress Stain pages ... I did rather a lot of them in one go ... and this is rapidly becoming a very orangey red journal which was not my intention at all!
Basically ... I cover quite a few pages in Distress Stains ... then ... when I feel like it ... I build up the background. The Wild Honey must have been ... well ... just a bit too ... erm ... handy!
Anyways ... I was seeing red when I did this page ... you know ... like annoyed red ... in fact ... said person was soooooo rude ... I was fuming! The best therapy was reaching for the Fired Brick Distress Ink and really going for it!
I used one of my favourite ... ever ... text stamps from Dylusions ... it is genius ... and the fact that I was steaming at the time ... it was perfect to stamp in red too. The skull doll thingy is made up of several Dylusions stamps ... and I know exactly who I mean when I look at it ... there are several hidden characteristics in the image! What fun that was ... and what great therapy ... calmed myself right down I did! Result!
My favourite thing about this page is the mistake I made in the lettering ... I am so proud of the fact that I have just left it ... sitting there ... for the world to see! For me ... that is real liberation and a massive step forward in terms of my journaling journey!
Righty-Ho ... I must way!
Have a good day people!
Laters!

I bet you were spitting feathers for a while though. I would probably have torn it up in frustration... Great lettering - can't wait for my lesson when we eventually hook up! You do seem to use a lot of orange/red/yellow I think they ARE your colours! The page is stunning!!

I wondered what I'd use that particular stamp on... now you've given me a great idea! And you just can't go wrong with your colors, IMHO.
