City morgue

Hello everyone,

For today's project I have made a journal spread. I only just noticed that I used almost the same colours as for my last project.

And here's how:

I used a brayer to apply these colours on the pages. This paint is very chalky so you don't have to use any gesso. 

I did the same with these two colours. 

Next, I collaged some dictionary paper on the page. 

Some stamping.

and some stencilling.

My focal images, stamped on tissue paper. 

And here it is put all together. I doodled around the edges and the sentiment with a pencil. I also coloured the doctor and the skeleton with Faber Castell Big Brush Markers. 

I have used the following stamps:

Other materials:
Archival inks:
Magenta pink - Viridian - Aquamarine - Jet Black - Watering can

Distress Oxide Ink:
Weathered wood 

A Tim Holtz zig zag stencil 

PaperArtsy Fresco Chalk Acrylics:
Sage - Teresa Green - Mermaid - Snowflake

Faber Castell Big Brush Markers:
Cold grey and Raw Umber 

Ranger Distress Collage Medium 

Thank you for stopping by today ! 


  1. Gorgeous page with an awesome background and nice colours. Love it.

  2. You make it *look* so easy! As always, I'm just completely bowled over by your clever backgrounds, and your humour - the only thing I don't like is that every time I see one of your projects, I'm off to buy more stamps!! Lotte xx
