This is the first time I have had time to play along at Art Journal Journey where the theme is Collage + some journalling.
I was so happy to see this challenge as I have been wondering what to do with my ever-growing piles of 'things that can't be thrown away"! I have folders, boxes, little zip up cases all full of scraps - some cut from magazines, some leftover from projects, bits and pieces that just 'appear'!!!
I have also used one of my favourite stamps here as the Moo Mania and More challenge is 'Favourite stamps or images' I have several favourite stamps depending on what I am doing and what mood I am in so this is going to be a challenge to narrow myself down - all I know is - I LOVE STAMPING!
I have also included a magazine picture of one of my favourite actresses - Audrey Hepburn.
I had the background in one of my larger journals - I think it is one I started on a Gelli plate play date with my friend Sarah a while ago.
One of the things Audrey said was
“The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it's all that matters.”
The stamp set includes these little statements and I wrote 'Be Happy' using a grey brush pen outlined in black Pitt pen.
I used part of a Crafty Individuals stamp on part of the page and a tiny text stamp from one of the Works stamp sets. I stamped the Woodware Cow Parsley onto the page and also onto a scrap of mop up paper(Yep, keep those too!)Audrey was given a butterfly instead of her hair ornament - I thought she would like it!!
Thanks for looking, Chris
