Life in the zoo !

Hello everyone,

Today it is the 1st of May and my turn to show another project with Roc Nicholas' fabulous stamps. I have made a little art journal with my favourite Roc stamp 'Horse'. This time he is impersonating a giraffe !

I love, love, love how you can manipulate these stamps and make them into something new! 
For this journal I painted the page with my Dylusions paint. I stamped the background with 'Heart Vine' and doodled in and around the stamped images with a white gel pen. I also punched some small hearts to replace the stamped ones. Next I tore some patterned paper and adhered it to the bottom and top right of the page. Next I wrapped some twine around the page; I saw some people do this on YouTube and thought it looked really cool ! The horse was stamped in two parts and altered, coloured and put back together. I adhered him to the page over the twine. Lastly I made the sentiment with 2 more of Roc's stamps : 'Art Junkie' and 'Unleash yourself', I just had to draw the 'Z' as there wasn't one in the stamps I mentioned...

I used the following stamps:

  4. Leuk die paardengiraffe...niet eerder gezien in de zoo :-). Apart die omwikkelde draden, alsof het dier voor een afgesloten hekwerk staat (dat vind ik altijd het zielige in dierentuinen!). Mooi geheel Corrie!
