Keep calm and Journal

Morning everyone and I have two cards to post today -the first one is for a new challenge at Artistic Inspirations which is ATG,we are sponsored by Oddball Art and I have use the fabulous image "Kawaii Girl Artist Poet Journalist Exraordinaire"coloured with promarkers and added glossy accents,vintage typewriter die from TH,postcards cut from Docraft papers,I made the background by coating card in gesso then while still wet covering in crumpled tissue paper,another coat of gesso and leave to dry,then sprayed with my sprays which still actually work mica and picket fence spray then distressed the edges with walnut stain.
