Reach for the stars!
There was another extremely inspiring selection of art over on A Vintage Journey blog last week. This time the theme is "Your Hearts Desire".
So, another journalling page for me, inspired by the lovely artist Laly Mille.
I worked onto double pages in a girl's annual from the 1930's. some of the text is sill visible.
First of all I washed a light covering of Gesso all over, then glued down some strips of papers from Marlene's collection.
Lots of stamping and layering of paint followed.
I added some Vintage Photo Distress inks to give it a vintage feel and layered up quite a lot of drippage.
I stamped and cut out some Emma Godfrey hearts and aged them with Distress Collage Medium.
Finally, the crowning glory was a quote which Alison Bomber put together as a collection on one of her many sets of stamps from PaperArtsy. EAB07.
I seem to instinctively choose this quote quite often. Probably the new year and my emotions at the moment which draw me to it!
Here is some more detail which shows off some of the Carabelle stamps by Birgit Koopsen.
It is actually lighter than this, but February light in my craft room is sadly lacking at the moment.
So, my entry in the "A Vintage Journey" challenge.
