In your dreams

Hello everyone,

welcome to my blog on this misty and murky New Year's Eve. It is Saturday today and that means it is the weekend. At Stampotique we share some of the wonderful word and quote stamps every weekend and I felt like making something ! Of course it is another art journal ! Anyway, hope you like it and Happy New Year !

This is my mini Moleskine journal. It is tiny at 5,5" x 3,5", a great size for quick journals. I started with gesso and then model paste with a stencil by Andy Skinner for DecoArt. I coloured it with watercolour paint. This was just an experiment as I didn't know how it was going to work. In te end it worked ! I stamped the background and splattered some watercolours on it. Next I stamped Cousin Carmine and coloured him/her?, cut him out and adhered him/her on to the page adding washi tape for him/her to stand on. The sentiment was stamped in white card stock and cut out; I added some really light pink to the edges of the paper. And that was it !

I used the following stamps: 

and the words we want to emphasize:

Thank you so much for stopping by today !
