La dolce vita

Hello fellow Crafters,

I played with my art journal today but didn't have much inspiration. I started out one way and ended another, didn't really know what I was doing. At the end of it all, this is what it looks like and I'm not sure I like it very much :

I used Pan Pastels for the base colour which were a few shades of yellow. I then went in with stencils and Versamark Ink and used a green Pan Pastel and also some background stamps with orange Distress Inks. I distressed the edges of the page with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and black Archival. I still wasn't sure about this but decided to battle on. I stamped the frames on patterned paper with black Archival Inks, tore them out, distressed them with Vintage Photo and glued them on the page. I stamped Fofe  (Stampotique) on the same patterned paper, coloured him with colour pencils and clear embossed him. I decided to put him on a bit of washi tape. I thought the whole thing had a bit of an ancient Italian/Roman feel to it, so I decided on the sentiment "La Dolce Vita" which was made with sticker letters on some of, again, the same patterned paper, which, by the way, has Latin writing on it.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hope you like it, not sure I do !!! lol !

  1. I love the titles/sayings you come up with that always seem to go so perfectly with your images, Corrie, and this one is no exception! Love how you created photo corners to frame this page, too. Most artists don't know where they're going when they begin, so not to worry! It's almost as difficult to know when to say, "Done!" Another great piece from you!
