Embrace the journey

Hello everyone,

Today I have an art journal spread to share.

A little while back I won a die to make a Christmas ornament in a give away by Monika Gulya's and although I like the idea I always try to use my stash in different ways. So in this journal I have used three die cuts from the die that I won.

I started out with die cutting three of the Christmas Ornaments and glued them on my pages with Gel Medium. I then used Distress Crayons to colour the pages. After I had finished I rubbed the ornaments with a wet cloth to make them more visible. I then stamped and stencilled the background using Tim Holtz stamps and stencils.  I chose the old man for my main image because I think he must have travelled a lot in his life and fitted the sentiment I chose fabulously ! 
After gluing him down I added a little shading under him to make sure he wasn't floating. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today.
