We had a fabulous week in London to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and today I was able to return to my Craft room. One of the things I did was this art journal with some new stamps I got at the Stamp & Scrap show in London last weekend.
Here's a few detail photo's:
The pages have been coloured with water-soluble Crayons in Oranges and pinks on top of an oneven layer of Gesso. I then used some of the stamps from the new PaperArtsy Range Eclectica ESN11 to stamp the background. I used Archval inks for this; a pink, an orange and black. I then used a TWC stencil and some modelling paste to add the flowers.
The main images, the hearts, are from the same PaperArtsy stamp set and I stamped them on some watercolour paper that I coloured ages ago with Dylusions and twinkling H2O's. I used some clear embossing powder while the ink was still wet, heat set them and cut them out. Next I stamped the sentiment that also came from this stamp set. It was then time to adhere hearts onto my page. I added some shading around them and lastly I used a black water colour pencil and a slightly damp blending stump to add the black shadows.
Thanks for stopping by !
