Whassup?

Hello fellow Crafters,

Just a quick one today; I've had so much fun creating these art journal pages that I wanted to share them with you. I used all VivaLasVegaStamps! Most of these from the wonderful Background Plate, I also used the butterflies, the sentiment 'Whassup?' and of course TweedleDee and TweedleDum...



This page started out a total disaster as I sprayed it with Dylusions (Green/Lime and black),  hated it and put it aside. The model paste was also already on it. Today I thought I should try and salvage it..  So I painted clear gesso over it and of course it was an even bigger disaster ! lol So I got out the Acrylic paints and painted over it.. Much better. I did a lot of stamping and used an eraser on top of a pencil to stamp the white dots with gesso. TweedleDee and TweedleDum were stamped on a blank page out of a book and quickly coloured with pencils. I cut them out and adhered them on top of some washi tape. I also adhered some washi tape randomly around the pages. Lastly I stamped 'Whassup?', first with white ink and then in black overtop.

These stamps are available from www.vlvstamps.com or if you live in Holland at http://thestampingcottage.nl.

That was it ! 

Hope you like it.....

  3. I find it amusing that you "had such fun" with "an even bigger disaster," Corrie! But you ended up with a great journal spread! I have several VLVStamps, but you still tempted me to their site, where I became lost in the "Naughty" section! Made my day! Mwah!

  11. Fantastic pages - the black is so funky against the vivid greens, especially over the texture and I love Tweedledum and Tweedledee... brilliant stamp choice.
