Happiness is a state of mind - Art Journal Page

Hello Everyone,
Shilpa from the Design Team here.



I am sharing with you a journal spread, for which I've used Rubber Dance Nostalgic Couples, Something Wonderful and few other stamp sets.

Here's my procedure...


To make the texture on the journal page, first I cut out this piece using a die.


I adhered that die cut pieces on pages and applied embossing paste through stencil.
 Let it dry completely.


To bring colours to the page I spritzed randomly with  Peacock Feather, Wilted Violet, Faded Jeans and Vintage Photo distress inks.


To create one more layer I stamped circles and text on the page.


In addition I applied colours from distress crayons to create depth.


I stamped the Nostalgic Couple on another paper with black archival ink and coloured it with distress markers.
 

I adhered a few embellishments and ephemera and layered the lovely couple image onto it.



On the other page, I added words from the Something Wonderful set.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I've used all these stamps from Rubber Dance Shop here:

Nostalgic Couple
 Something Wonderful
 Collage Elements
 Round In Circles
Vintage Hotel Receipt
Vintage Script ATC size

This is wonderful Shilpa, I love the jewel tones and how you've incorporated the die cuts. Both ideas squirrelled away for later ;-) xx
