and happy Wednesday to you. Today it is my turn to host the Challenge over at the Stampotique Designers' Challenge blog and I want you all to use book text. This is such a versatile material and when I get a bit stuck I regularly reach for an old book to use the pages. Play along with us and you will have a chance to win one of two $30 vouchers to spend in the Stampotique shop at the end of the month. Just remember : only one entry per person per challenge and no digi's.
I made an art journal:
The background is a gelli print. I had a great afternoon a few weeks ago just gelli printing and the results are quite good. Anyway, I cut it to size and then started with some background stamping with 'French Journal Page' and 'Hexagon'. I used Distress ink & White ink for this. I then stamped 'Crow Line' and 'Daisy daisy' and coloured the flower petals with a white pen. Next I stamped Bowtie on book text and clear embossed him. I cut him out and set him aside. With a border punch I cut some bits of book text and inked them with blue and black ink. Next I adhered them at the bottom of my page and a little bit on every other side of the pages for a bit of balance. Then it was time for 'Bowtie' to take his place between the flowers. Lastly I stamped the sentiment 'There is a whole world..'.
Stamps I used : French Journal Page
