AEDM (Day 16) - Pinterest inspired page

Thought I'd interrupt the regularly schedule program of girl faces and beetles with a Pinterest inspired art journal page.  Do you love Pinterest?!  I do - although it can definitely be a time waster if you aren't careful and I waste enough time looking around in blog world as it is. . . 
Broke up the white with some random bits of Washi tape (A Muse Studio) on the borders and some ink splats.  Currently I feel that all things are improved with ink spots (including my computer screen - I have got to be more careful with that ink!!)
Colors are courtesy of the current Play Date Cafe Challenge.  Word stickers are from Tim Holtz idea-ology.

Yes, I love Pinterest too, and a watercolor painting doesn't seem finished without some splatters. This is a lovely page. I love the simplicity of the flower forms. -Terri

You are so right--little dots of black (or white) really can pull the whole thing together!

Love the colours and design, looks quite retro I think, reminds me of the 50's. I agree pinterest can be a great source of inspiration and also procrastination!

I really like the simple composition and muted colors, it's like a whisper instead of a shout.
