Don't look back... and life is a circus

Hello fellow Crafters,

Today I did two art journals for the Round Robin via de Craftorij. The first one is for Petra de Kok and this is what I made :

The background is a gelli print and I started with my brand new stamps from Stampotique : Journey collage for the background and Rear View Mirror, which is the lady. I stamped her on book text and glued her on the page on top of some washi tape. I used my bottle top for the rings, splattered some ink on the page and used some rub ons. The sentiment was made with sticky letters on the margin of the book text I used. Lastly I drew a line around the page. That was it ! 

The second on I made today is for Anne Veldhuijzen. It is called : Life is a circus and here it is :

I started this with painting the pages a light yellow and then I cut circles out of a gelli print. I glued the circles on my page and then took my water-soluble crayons and shaded the edges of the circles and the edges of the page. I did some random stamping and then stamped the dogs (Lost Coast Designs)  on book text and cut them out. I adhered them to the circles. Lastly I stamped the tickets and stapled them to the left hand side of the page and used a stamp which resembles stitches to the edges of the page. 

Thanks for stopping by ! 

Hope you like them....


  1. Another couple of great pages Corrie

  2. Two lovely pages Corrie, the softness of the background works beautifully with the stamping, I love both :D xx

  3. Brilliant Corrie, love them both, specially like the lady stamped on the bookpages and fabulous subtle backgrounds!! All really interesting stamps though.... Wonderful

  4. Two lovely pages, with a preference for the second as far as I'm concerned... Much dreamful! Have a lovely day, hugs Coco x

  5. Wat een heerlijke achtergronden Corrie, de eerste spreekt me het meest aan.

  6. Two super spreads, Corrie! Of course, I prefer the one with "Rear View Mirror." It made me smile when I saw that you had purchased it!
