This ATC sized card is going into my technique box:

Personally I like this one most, don't know whether that's because of the paper, or the embossing powder I've used.

Week 22 of Journal52 - Traveling

Travelling was the prompt for week 22. 
Yes, I know I am behind, working hard to get back in track:)

I started off with some bookpaper from a roadmap. I glued it to the journal page, then covered it randomly with some gesso. The part where the car had to come, I added a little more, to cover the map better. The skyline was added, and all the other stamped images, to create the collage as shown. I added touches of color with watercolor pencils. I sponged with some distress inks... 

"Wherever you go, becomes a part of you!"




STAMPS USED: 
Skyline - Katzelkraft
Car - PSX
Postage stamp left - Kaisercraft
other postage - unknown to me.

Time to let go...

White heat embossing on a rather colorful background can be a little dramatic, 
but I like it; suits the nice sunny weather we have at the moment.
The clocks reminds me of 'time', there is a time to hold and a time to let go:  Our daughter got married this week :).... 
 I distressed the edges with sanding paper, then added some gesso and scribbling to accentuate it.

Flowers is what summer is about, isn't it?

You must have seen that there is a new monthly challenge at Katzelkraft, (closing on the 25th)! Don't hesitate to enter in the challenge, a 15 euro prize isn't bad, is it?  


As promised a photo tutorial of my DT piece today! 


Here you go: 
1. Cut a piece of scrapbookpaper to the size you want it to be.
I also used the black border of the scrapbookpaper (didn't want to throw it away).

2. Stamp the image with a solvent ink.

3. Stamp the script randomly, also with second-generation stamping  (that's when you stamp it a second or even third time without re-inking the stamp).

3.Add some white to the flowers and leaves with a white acrylic pen, I've used a Molotov pen here. I've also used a dark brown marker to add some darker parts, to accentuate certain parts.

4.  Add some greens (just small touches) to the flowers and the leaves. I used a watercolor pencil.
Finish the card as shown.
DONE! Easy hey?!
