It's my turn on the UmWow Studio blog again today and I have an art journal page to share with you.
I have used the Distressed Harlequin Background pieces that I had left over from my last project.
This page was made with a piece of pattern paper by Prima called 'love letter' from the Pastiche collection. I added some 'Old paper' Distress Ink around the edges and collages pieces of an old envelope on it. I bought this in an antique shop and it has a letter too. For now I just used the envelope with the address on it. Next I added some gesso where the chipboard was going to be and stamped the background randomly for more interest. I then added the stitch lines around the edges with a black marker.
I added my altered chipboard ( I have made a YouTube tutorial of how I did this; link below) and some other bits and pieces like cambric and some lace flowers and stuck my photo on top. Lastly I added the sentiment.
Here are some close ups:
This is the chipboard I used. I had some left over pieces from my last project and decided I might as well use them but then in a different way.

Thank you so much for stopping by today !
