Everything is going to be OK..

Hello fellow Crafters,

Last Saturday we had the reunion of the Summer Challenge and whilst in the Craftorij I couldn't resist buying a few bits. Today I used my new Fresco Paints and my new Dina Wakley stamp to make this art journal. The reunion was a great success by the way and it was lovely to meet so many like minded people ! Lia and the other girls in the shop spoiled us with cupcakes, coffees and sweets. Also they organised a little workshop and a make and take which were both very enjoyable.
Anyway here's the journal :

I painted the page with Fresco Paint in Honey dew and then used two more colours: Sage and Limelight with two home carved stamps. I did this last week with a few old erasers. Great fun...
I then used some grey and black ink to do some more background stamping. Dina's girl was stamped with Archival Ink directly on the page in two places. Lastly I stamped the sentiment (Kaiserkraft) also with Archival Jet Black and that was it really. I really like the result although these colours are not my usual thing ! 

Thanks for stopping by ! 

Hope you like it....


  1. Mooie kleuren en balans tussen "bold"-strukturen en de stempel! Groetjes, Gerrina

  2. Wat een mooi resultaat door de vormen en kleuren die je gebruikt hebt Corrie.
    En die DW stempel...dat is echt een "diemoetikhebben" stempel he :-)
    groetjes, Alie :-)

  3. The "chaos" in the background perfectly balances your sentiment, Corrie! Love the yellow!
