Lettering and Infusions: ArtJournal page

Inspired/strucked by a single image on the Instagram account of Marta Lapowska I wanted to try the same technique with the Infusions by PaperArtsy. If you don't know what the Infusions are, you can watch my video '10 Ways to use Infusions ' about them, and their endless possibilities. In few words these are cristal of colours (like the Color Burst or Brushos or the Magicals) with a twist: a vintage touch.
To make a bunch of colourful backgrounds just sprinkle the Infusions and then spray with water, and let the magic happens. In an hour session I got 4 different backgrounds, on different papers.

Ispirata da una singola immagine sul profilo Instagram della bravissima Marta Lapowska, ho voluto provare anch'io, solo con gli Infusions della PaperArtsy. Se non sapete cosa sono e siete curiose, qui il mio video "10 Modi di Usare gli Infusions": in poche parole sono dei cristalli di colore che sparsi tipo il sale sulla carta reagiscono con l'acqua sempre in maniera diversa.
In un'oretta si possono fare un sacco di sfondi:

The largest one became a loose ArtJournal page, made with just a big magazine image and some lettering 
Con il grande ho fatto una paginetta sciolta dell'AJ, giusto una immagine da una rivista e delle scritte

And three simple cards
E dagli altri un paio di cards al volo
Every time you got different effects, I think this is the main reason I like to use them so much!
Ogni volta il risultato è diverso, forse è per questo che mi piacciono tanto!

I think this page fits perfectly the latest theme on Simonsaysstamp Monday challenge blog:
Make Your Own Background.

Favolosi sfondi e.... la tua "paginetta" di AJ è FAVOLOSA!!!! Come mi piacerebbe saper scrivere e fare doodling così! :D Mi piace un sacco, e poi la scritta tipo calligramma tutto attorno all'immagine e l'anello sono dettagli stupendi!
Belle anche le card, davvero uno sfondo come uno questi può "fare la card"

WOW! The journal page is stunning and the colours are so vibrant. I have recently bought some infusions but so far what I have done has been a bit muted. I must try your bolder colours xxx

Oh my goodness! Every single one of these pieces is a work of true art! I love Infusions, but I haven't experimented with them as much as I'd like to so I really appreciated all of your excellent tips and tricks for using them! And I thought it was absolutely GENIUS of you to turn the dripped page on its sides and to use the drips as lines for your letting! All of these items you've created are so stunning and I was so inspired looking through this post. Thank you for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

Simply fabulous Gio!!!!!
and so great that you got the honours of Stampington with this amazing journal page, so well you.. What a pity that we are so far away from each one, I would have been thrilled to learn (and practice a bit) lettering and drawing with you :)
A big hug, happy Sunday bella!
