Hello fellow Crafters,

I bought a second hand stamp set a few weeks ago and decided to use it today in an Art Journal. It is all about chocolate and is called 'Chocolate Shoppe' by Club Stamp. It was released in 2005.

I painted the pages in several shades of (chocolate?) brown and used some more of my finger painted circles.. I can't get enough of those.. I stamped the background with several of the stamps from the set and then put on some model paste through a stencil and sprinkled some glitter on it while it was still wet. Next I doodled a few lines around the page.
The lady is another stamp and was stamped on Arondirack paper. This works perfectly every time with photostamps and StaZon ink. I matted the the image on black card stock and layered it on some book text and fabric. I also stamped some rings on it with a bottle cap, put some rub ons on and wound some string around it. I then adhered it to the page. The last things were the sentiment, also from the same set, some rub ons here and there and that was it....

Thanks for stopping by !

Hope you like it....

    Let it be known that I love chocolate but guess what? ..... I also love your journal pages.
    The colours are perfect and there is a gorgeous balance of vintage and contemporary. As always, great skill is in evidence.

  4. Surprisingly, I am female yet not a huge chocolate fan. Pair it with peanut butter or caramel, however, and I am there! I do, however, like your recent stamp purchase. A fun spread for your journal, Corrie!

  5. Chocolade is altijd goed!!! Ook bij zo'n spread; mooi die vintage look! Groetjes, Gerrina
