Believe - Art Journal Page

Hello Everyone, Shilpa here,
Hope you had a great weekend and making some crafty plans for week ahead.
Today I am sharing with you a journal page which I made with Artistic stamper's gorgeous Gibson girl stamp.


I've used Wendy Vecchi's Archival reinkers and rubbing alcohol (Surgical Spirit) to create the background. I put few drops of rubbing alcohol on the craft mat and on that I added one drop of each Archival reinkers colours- Forget Me not, Dandelion and Leaf Green. They are very concentrated colours. I mixed them well with rubbing alcohol. And put my paper into that and took it off. I had to do two three times to get this cool background.
Next I stamped this Gibson girl image with Ranger jet black Archival Ink. Below that, I stamped circles  with  Boarder stamp A6#2. I also attached ruler washi tape. I've created some background texture with Damask stencil, Calligraphy mat 12 and Vintage photo distress ink.


On the other side of the page, I stamped Neil Walker Bobble bird with Ranger black Archival ink. To bring more vibrant colour on the page, I adhered flowers. The Journaling word 'believe' is from this AS stamp set.


Hope you liked my two page journal spread.
We have Autumn colours theme challenge going on for this month, join us to win the beautiful Artistic stamper stamps.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Supplies used:
Washi tape, Flowers from my stash.
