The trouble with trouble...

Hello fellow Crafters,

Another day, another mini art journal page with a new stamp. I love them. This is what I made:

I started out putting loads of gesso on the page. I used a brush but you can probably see that by the brush strokes. I love all that texture.  I then used some Pan Pastels in violet and purple and after putting the fixative on, I used a background stamp with numbers but you can hardly see it. The polkadots were made with Punchinella and a white ink. I used a cap for the circles with black Archival and also used this ink to go around the edges of the page. The little stars are rub ons. I fancied using this little sheep today because he is my favourite of my new stamps. He is called Sheep Monster and he is, of course, Stampotique. As usual I stamped him on white paper, coloured him with watercolour pencils en clear embossed him. He is standing on a another stamp which is Paperartsy and got the same treatment. The sentiment is made with TH sticker letters and I found it on the internet, where else !!!
Thanks for stopping by !
Hope you like it.....

  4. An adorable little guy, Corrie! I know the fun you are having playing with new stamps, a pastime I savor, too! I can't believe your rub-ons looks so good on top of that rough surface. You have a magic touch that escapes me...most of the time! But, today, it is the quote that has me hooked!

  5. I love your texture, your lilac colour, your sentiment and your cuteeeee monster !!!! Lovely Corrie ! Hugs, Coco x
