Wine improves with age...

Hello fellow Crafters,

I am trying to make something for Lost Coast Designs every Tuesday. So here is my second DT piece. It is an Art Journal.

The first thing I did was die cut the Tim Holtz clock from some chipboard and glued it on the right page. I cut of the excess. Next I gessoed the page and then I wanted to use my newly acquired Gelatos. So I made a start and I didn't really like how they went on the page. So I used a baby wipe to take most of it off again and used my trusty Caran D'ache Neocolors. Much better. I used a few shades of orange and some red. The clock was coloured with Archival ink (Potting Soil) and after it dried I put some gold Gelato on. Next I used some bubble wrap and red Distress Ink to stamp the polkadots. The rings were stamped with black Dylusions and I also splattered some if that on the page together with some white ink.  Next I stamped the "Three Waiters" by Lost Cost Designs on book text, cut them out and put them aside. The sentiment was typed on some ruled paper that I die cut with another TH die and inked with Archival ink. I adhered it in two bits on to the page. I placed the waiters on top of that. I still thought the pages needed something so I used a stencil and some brown Distress ink to stencil the postmark here and there and adhered another piece of the paper I used for the sentiment in the left hand top corner. 

Thanks for stopping by ! 

Hope you like it...

  3. Corrie, this is absolutely magnificent! I love your waiters stamped on book text (how very versatile is book text!!), and your bits of ruled paper with the sentiment is brilliant! Of course, you know I love it! ;-)

  4. Love your LCD art journal pages, Corrie!! OMG--you used bubble wrap to stamp with!! How cool is that! Bubble wrap doesn't stay bubbly in my household--I like to pop the bubbles too much ;) :) Wonderful LCD DT project :) Thanks for keeping us inspired :) XOXO-Shari T.
