You'll never fly unless you try

Hello fellow Crafters,

It is the 1st of August already and that means time for another DT post from me. I love Roc's stamps and have great fun creating things with them. I you like them too you can find them HERE.
I did an art journal for this post and this is it :

I finger painted the pages with 2 shades of yellow, 2 shades of pink and some white. Next I splattered some white ink on it.  I then used the 'When pigs fly' stamp in the background, yellow on yellow and pink on pink. Unfortunately it doesn't show up very well in the photo.  I also used the 'Heart Vine' and the 'Scalloped lace border' along the edges and doodled some lines and dots. Next I stamped the 'Flying pig', 3 times with wings, three times without wings and also some wings separately. I coloured them, cut them out and stacked the ones without wings on top of each other and topped this 'pile of pigs' with a pig with wings. I then used the extra wings on the two pigs on the left. Lastly I wrote the sentiment. 
I used the following Stampotique stamps designed by Roc Nicholas :

Thanks for stopping by ! 

Hope you  like it....

  4. This makes me feel so happy!!!!!!!
    Such great use of the stamps and also the background is perfect for those flying pigs.

  5. Mooie kleuren en leuke achtergrond, maar vooral grappig! Zit met een glimlach om de lippen dit te typen... Fijn weekend, Gerrina

  6. What a fun and encouraging journal spread, Corrie! Love the bright and cheery color combination, as well as that "stack-o-pigs" over on the right. That stack certainly supports your sentiment, doesn't it? I had to take a close look to see the "When Pigs Fly" stamp, but find that I love the result of color on color very much! Great job!
