Here's lookin' at you kid!

Hello fellow Crafters,

I (eventually) had fun making this art journal...

This was quite a challenge... I started with Gelato's and water and hated it... I have come to the conclusion that I am probably the only person in the world that doesn't like Gelato's ! Oh well... never mind. I ended up sealing it with gel medium and then I just rubbed an Archival Ink pad over it... lol..
I also used the same ink (colour: Rose Madder) and a stencil to create some pattern in each corner.
Next I did some background stamping. 
I bought the Row of Faces second hand an I stamped them on white card stock, coloured them and cut them out. I matted them on book text and adhered them to the pages, connecting them with a black line as on the original stamp.. 
Next I stamped Wilbur, coloured him and cut him out. I adhered him on the page on top of some washi tape. I also put the same washitape in two other places for balance. Some leftover rub ons formed the rectangles. 
I found some die cut flowers in my stash and decided to use them too. I doodled around them after adhering them. 
Lastly I took my Archival Jet Black Ink and rubbed it around the edges and adhered the sentiment which I made with Tim Holtz letters. 
I used the following stamps (all by Stampotique):

Thanks for stopping by ! 

Hope you like it ....


  1. Love your stampotique journal pages and this is no exception!

  2. You have another winner, Corrie! I love this combination of stamps, especially how you have used some of them for background interest. And, yes, I love Wilbur, too! Gelato's are one of the few things I don't have!

  3. Het ziet er ook zo vrolijk uit met al die gezichtjes! Fijn weekend, Gerrina
