Life is sweet

Hello fellow Crafters,

This is my second post for today and after I finished the art journal in the post before this one, I allowed myself to play with my new stamps. ;o) This is my first project with Lollipop. Is it a girl or a boy ?? Well, she is wearing a mini skirt so I will assume it is a girl.

This is a page in my mini Moleskine journal.
The background is one of my experiments from last week with gesso. I painted it lightly with Distress paint.  I did do a little bit of background stamping with blue ink but you can't really see it. You can see the black dotted circles though, I stamped those with Archival ink which I also used to go around the edges of the page. I stamped Lollypop on white paper, coloured her with watercolour pencils and clear embossed her and Bushes on booktext which I coloured also with watercolour pencils but didn't emboss them. The sun came from a free stampset, which I got with a magazine and was also stamped on booktext and coloured with watercolour pencils. I cut everything out and glued it on the page. I thought about this sentiment because of the lollypop and made it with a Dymo labelmaker.
Thanks for stopping by !
Hope you like it.....

  7. Love how you created a scene in which Lollipop takes her debut on your table!! I think she is a girl, too, even thought she is wearing that masculine cap! ;-) Nicely played, Corrie!
