World traveler

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my DT post for Inkadinkadutchies. I have made another art journal, yes, I know, boring but I just love making journals..

This one was really easy. I started with painting the page with gesso using a brush, after which I painted it with turquoise, green and white Dina Wakley paints, with my fingers. I used the same colours with a bubble stencil and a blending tool to create the circles. I used a few different sized bottle tops to add the rings around the bubbles.  
Next I stamped the background with the 'ATC Misc. set' and one of the text stamps from the 'Bugz set'. I then stamped the 'City scape' and 'Steampunk Icarus' on the page using Archival Jet Black ink. I think that works best over acrylic paints. Lastly I added the Tim Holtz chit chat stickers and doodled around them.

That was it. You can get these lovely stamps at Inkadinkadutchies in the Netherlands if you live in Europe or at Lost Coast Designs if you live outside Europe. If Inkadinkadutchies don't have them in stock they can always order them for you... 

Thank you so much for stopping by !
