eight arms to hold you

today is day 7, the final day of Kickstart your art over at the Smeared and Smudged blog...
and today's challenge is Easy Water Blotting Background!
so I used one of the new images from the Octopus Pie set.
 the lil octopus guys at the bottom are from Stampotique, and the quote is from The Beatles 
short story...I asked my husband for an octopus quote and he said "eight arms to hold you" and I was like whats that from? and he said it was the alternate title for The Beatles' movie there you have it!
I went over my background with distress ink...then I smeared some more distress ink on top of that in different colors, I took some bubble wrap and got it wet and put it on top then blotted it, then I let it dripp from the top and then blotted that too and there I have my page...I really like how it turned out...I'm so happy with my Art Journal right now I really enjoyed this week of has forced me to be creative and I really needed it!

have an awesome week everyone!
