Finally I can share my good news with you. A while ago I was asked by Linda from Lost Coast Designs Stamps to join the Design Team. And of course I accepted. There are now 4 Dutch ladies on the team which is great: Esther Glas, Coby van Willigenburg, Yvonne Koops and little old me ! Of course there are other ladies which I shall add to the sidebar of my blog soon.
To celebrate I made an Art Journal:
The pages were painted with gesso and coloured with Pan Pastels in 3 shades of turquoise. I stamped the LCD "3 birds" in the background. You can just see them if you look closely. I cut some circles and a strip out of book text and coloured all these pieces with Distress Inks in yellows and oranges. I punched a scallop at the bottom of the strip. Next I adhered these pieces to the pages. I used a spray bottle top and white and black paint to stamp the circles. I used a black fine pen do doodle around the scalloped piece. I then took a stencil and used part of it to stencil the black chevrons.
Next I stamped the '50s girl" on white paper and coloured her, cut her out and placed her on the scalloped piece. The sentiment I used came from another LCD stamp called "Waiting for Mr. Right". I thought it was quite funny in combination with this girl. Some spattering with black and white ink finished it off.
Thanks for stopping by !
