Keeping it toned down

Another scheduled post and I am joining in at Art Journal Journey with Wendy's 'Having Fun' theme!

When I have messy hands you can guarantee I'm having fun - and this time my hands were very messy!
Adding to the fun I was using some of my favourite Lynne Perella stamps by Paper Artsy!

I stencilled and stamped over the page then toned everything down with gesso. I lightly crumpled some paper add dipped into some watery ink on my mat! Once dry I stamped the image on it! The rest was just some scraps that I stamped onto using stamps from the same set and some tiny punched book paper circles.

I would also like to join in the Neutral Zone challenge at A Vintage Journey
I just realised that I hadn't linked this while we were away!!!!

I'll be home soon with tales of Paris!

Thanks for looking, Chris

This is beautiful, Chris - the LP woman looks right at home amidst these subtle shadowy greys. Thanks so much for joining us on A Vintage Journey.
