Hello everyone,

It's time for another DT post from me for VivaLasVegaStamps! I love their stamps, they are so much fun.. For today I did a small art journal...

Here is the finished product:

And here is how it all started. With a clean and white page in my small art journal..

I painted the page with gesso and when that had dried I used a purple Lindys Flat Fabio spray and some Magicals; they are basically mica powders. The names of the colours are quite amusing:
"Midnight rendezvous" and "Gag me with a spoon gray"!!
I just kept spraying, dripping and painting until I was happy with the result.

Next I stamped the background. A full list of all the stamps I used is at the bottom of this post. 
Just to point out that the wire mesh on the right side of the page I extended using a grey pencil as it was a little to small to fill the page.

Next I stamped the main image but I didn't do a very good job and had to fill in the image using a black marker. Luckily it doesn't show. 

And after some tweaking with purple circles and adding the sentiment it was finished; here is another picture:

I used the following stamps:

Thank you for stopping by ! 

Until next time !

  3. Loving this, Corrie - I had to look very carefully to find out how the Mona Lisa and the work apocalypse were connected, which was likely your intention! :D

  4. Another wonderful journal page, Corrie! Love all the layers of yummy color. Super creative how you entended the mesh at the side, too. I can tell you love the VLVStamps!

  5. This is so cool! Bigger circles must be some really big bullet holes. Xx

  6. Fabulous inky effects and great stamping - there's something really powerful about the result.
