If I had a world of my own ..

Hello fellow Crafters,

I love Janet Klein's Alice-series stamps and my favourite must be 'The Tweedles'. I couldn't resist using them again today on this art journal.

I started this page with model paste and a Dutch Doobadoo stencil. I applied the paste at the top and the left of the page. I coloured it with a variety of sprays, acrylic paint and gelatos.. Yes, I know it is a lot. I just couldn't get it the way I wanted it.... I succeeded in the end though..
I used white and orange ink with stencils for a bit more interest. I also used quite a few stamps to stamp the background.
A scrap of paper that was coloured with twinkling H2Os was used for the flags and the grounding for the "Tweedles". They were stamped on special marker paper. I have been wanting to try that for ages and I did have some of it for ever in my stash but only today I tried it. It works well but I think nice smooth card stock works just as well. I cut them out and placed them on the little 'pointy' border. I forgot to mention that a inked all the edges with Archival Jet Black ink. The sentiment was lying in my stash for a while now and I thought I'd use it today. Isn't it funny ! It was typed with an old typewriter on white cardstock.  That was it....

Thanks for stopping by !

Hope you like it...
