Why hello

Hello fellow Crafters,

I am having so much fun with the stamps of VivaLasVegaStamps! that I can't stop playing with them!
So I made a little mini art journal that I would like to share with you all:

This journal is very small and by Moleskine, I love it. I started off with painting the pages light yellow (I used PaperArtsy Fresco Paint in the colour Cheesecake for this). Next i used a Tim Holtz stencil (Rays) and Distress Inks in Orange and put the rays on the pages, flipping the stencil for the other side. 
I then stamped the background with a variety of stamps (list down below) and orange and grey Archival inks. I also used a dark red Distress Ink to stamps the "Tape X" stamp and didn't like it so I had to cover it up, hence the washi tape....

The next thing I did was stamp the girl with the phone on white card stock and coloured her with my Copic Markers. I filled in her glassed with Glossy Accents. 
So now I had to find a way to get rid of 'Tape X' and I thought, why not use real tape so I got my washi tapes out and just put some over the top. I did doodle around them with a black fine tipped pen. 
Next it was time to adhere the girl in the middle of where the two stencilled rays meet. 
Lastly I stamped the sentiment. 
I used the following stamps:

Thanks for stopping by !

Hope you like it and got inspired !
