Here's another ledger page...
The page started with an inky layer of Dylusions ink sprays, followed by Dylusions stencils, Studio 490 stamps, some found stamps for the circles, and some of my hand carved stamps. I'm challenging myself to use as many of my hand carved stamps as possible. It's hard to resist using some of my favorites from other designers, but it really makes "my" pages feel like "my" art, which I love.
I couldn't resist adding some torn maps as a border across the bottom section of the page, and stamped one of Wendy Vecchi's number stamps.
I stamped out the message, from one of my favorite songs by Mary Chapin Carpenter, with my hand carved alphabet set, and outlined with a Sharpie white paint pen. It looked lost on the page so I outlined it and gave it a little 3-D shadow box.
My favorite part of the page is the leafy border, done with a single leaf stamp (hand carved of course), and then colored in with peeled paint distress stain and a water brush, and outlined with a white gelly roll pen.
Have a great weekend! I'll be back next week with more pages, and some pix from my classes with Dina Wakley.
