Smudgy Antics Weekly Challenge "Touch Me"

Howdy Howdy Howdy... I want to get this post up. I am totally pushin the gun here as I have I think about 2 hours left to submit my piece for the challenge.
This weeks Challenge is "Touch Me"
Lay on the stuff. All about texture embossing powders, embossing folders, gesso spackling compound, whatever you can.
You should totally go there and check out the design teams pieces for this week.
One of my favorites. Really some awesome submission's this week.
Ok on to mine.
I did another journal spread. I finally got myself a watercolor paper journal and made up a bunch of ink sprays with reinkers I have had laying around for a while. The first pic is with the flash on the camera 2nd is without. Which one do you guys think is the best? I always have a hard time with that.I've been doing alot of art journaling these last couple of weeks.

 One of my favorite techniques to do right now.
 I love doing it.
Here's some pics of what I did last night. I have tons of compound spackling black gesso, white gesso, spray inks. The heart digi with wings is from smeared ink. I used a few different crafter's workshop stencils on this spread. I ordered a couple of dylusion's stencils,inks and stamps and cant wait to get them to play with. Her ink looks like alot of fun. Black gesso ended up being alittle run y for some reason. kinda ran out around the stencil. Or then again it could have just been me of course.. I'm sorry I cant remember where I got the lady digi. So hopefullly it's not a copyrighted image. I'm always afraid of that. If it is and you see it please forgive me and let me know if you want me to credit you totally for such an awesome image. I should rather be safe than sorry later and just not use images I cant remember where it came from. I've been keeping pretty good track of the digi's I acquire now. I keep them all in their own folder so this never happens again.
Have a good sunday everyone. I'm totally spending the day in my craft room. I claim sunday's for that I was getting too behind on some inky trashy fun.. Goodnight all

 Ok I also want to show you this awesome piece of art. I rented an apartment to this yound kid and his girlfriend. He is a graffiti artist. He brought this over to me last night. Isnt this awesome. I love work like this. I'm gonna ask him to do my name in this way. I've always loved looking at train cars going by with this stuff on it. fascinating to me. I think he's awesome. In the big blue letters he did a crackly effect. 2nd pic show's a closer shot if it. Cant wait to see more of his work.

Awesome work! This week's challenge really was fun. So many great creations that you wish you could actually touch. My favourite part in this one is probably the top right corner. Love the red circles, they look like scales!

I think I usually prefer photos without the flash on but I guess it depends. Like here in the first picture the paints look really sparkly and I like it. But yeah, I know next to nothing about photography and sometimes have trouble with this flash on/flash off thing myself, so I really am not the best advisor, haha :)
