It's A Gift To Be Simple





I'm linking my art journal page up at:

Balzer Designs - Art Journal Every Day

I started off with Melange Tissue Wrap from Idea-ology, a Liquitex gesso wash, and a blending of TH Distress Paints - Mowed Lawn, Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Tumbled Glass. I used a baby wipe to blend them together then put some Vintage Photo DP on the edges. I stamped my two main images onto a file folder, colored them with Aquarelle pencils from Faber-Castell then cut then out. I glued them down with matte gel. The stamps are from Artistic Outpost - Old Grist Mill, Kudzu Kafe, Home and Stampers Anonymous - Bitty Grunge. The stencil is SA Burlap used with Golden Light Molding Paste. The images are shaded with F-C Big Brush pen in Nougat.

Thank you for stopping by!
Linda
