Color Crazy Time with Whimsy

At the Anything But Cute Mixed Media Challenge for March the theme is "Crazy for Colour" (notice my spelling...believe me it is right to spell it this way where I live :) and I wanted a chance to finger paint with some new Dylusions paints!  Such yummy, scrumptious colors, indeed!  I made a journal page using one of my girls I drew months ago that I found "a" sketch pad as I was tearing a sheet of paper out to start.  Good timing.  She is whimsical but not happy so in my book not cute.  The wording got lost in the blue but that kind of fits the theme of this page, too.

I also wanted to play at Art Journal Journey where the theme is "If You Go into the Woods" so I added the blue Distress ink gauze rolled flowers as she is lost in a sort of dark Wonderland that is somehow affected by the O's and 1's of the binary "woods".  A place that I quiet often get lost in much easier I think than I would in a real forest!
I would like to enter this in the following challenge:

And at Art Journal Journey "If You Go into the Woods"  (gauze flowers and dark Wonderland themed page to fit the challenge theme)
