An art journal just for fun...

Hello everyone,

I will be going on holiday soon so I was very busy with working ahead for the DT's I am on. I have now finished with that so this afternoon I had time to play !! I made this art journal just for fun.

I gessoed a page in my art journal and used a stencil with model paste to create the swirls. When this had all dried I used Lindy's Stampgang sprays to colour the background. It is very shimmery but unfortunately you can't see it very well. Next I used a scriptstamp to make the background a bit more interesting. I used green Distress Ink for this. The Zebra gentleman was stamped on gessoed book text and lightly coloured. I cut him out and glued him on to the page. I though that this sentiment was very apt and I typed it out on my old typewriter, cut it in strips, inked the edges and glued the strips to the page. Lastly I doodled around the words and used an old credit card and black paint to put some black accents here and there along the edge of the page. 
I used only two stamps and they are both from Katzelkraft. 

Thank you for stopping by ! 


  1. Corrie, how fabulous this is. The background is absolute perfect, in fact it could not be more perfect. It is very evocative of Victorian era, I love this so much!

  2. Jaaaa, ik word saai...maar ook dit creatieve werk van jou vind ik ook weer mooi Corrie!
    Groetjes, Alie :-)
