Fear of the Unknown

Today I've got this art journal page:

It's week 2 of my guest designer spot at Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge
and this week's challenge is Winter Blues.

 I focused on the "Blues" part of the challenge for my background.
I used distress crayons in Stormy SkyChipped Sapphire and Evergreen Bough plus two blue neocolor wax pastel sticks.
I used the numbers stamp from Perspective randomly. I sprayed ink through the Art Is stencil
and used a baby wipe through the Plus stencil to remove color and leave white pluses.
 I die cut the hearts from the Scribbles and Splat set.

The sentiment and butterflies are also from the Perspective stamp set.

I used a waterbrush and distress inks to color in the butterlies.

 I finished it off by dripping some black ink and edging the pages with a black gelato.

Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope you can participate in the challenge for your chance to win $50 to spend in the SSS store!
