My latest art journal page. To me, this phrase says 'make the best of what you've got' so I've not decided yet whether to put a bit of personal journalling on or not.
Background done with acrylic paints, including some stencilling with a plastic veg bag piece, stamps by Elusive Images and a little bit of colouring with Inktense pencils.

Entering into:
MAKE IT MONDAY #95 - Anything goes.
INCY WINCY - Anything goes.
LOVE TO CREATE #21 - Anything goes.
