Pretty awesome..

Hello fellow Crafters,

Today I have an art journal page to share. I used another one of my new Stampotique stamps and really enjoyed making this page. So here goes :

I scraped gesso on this page with a painter's knife and made sure is was rough and irregular. I then sprayed Dylusions on in orange, yellow, lime and a tiny bit of blue. I had to do this a few times and spray it with water to get some colour because the gesso just soaks it all up. When that all dried I made the colours a little brighter with Distress Inks in the same colours. Next I stamped the border, this is a Dylusions 'Inbetweenie' or better said half a one as I only inked half of it up. I then doodled around it with a white gel pen. I also used a Dylusions Number stencil with white ink and did a little bit of background stamping with orange, grey and black Archival inks. Then I choose this lovely chappie to feature, his name is 'Are my pants too tight'. Because I didn't want him to feel lonely I thought Kitty could keep him company. The sentiment came from the internet and is by no means perfectly placed but hey, I may not be perfect.....
I used washi tape to place the images and the sentiment on and again did some doodling around the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by !
Hope you like it....
