Three Men In My Art Journal

 Hi everyone, we've been busy socialising lately but I have also managed to get a few journal pages made.

I have been enjoying using washi tape in my smaller journals and in my travel journal prep too so I thought while I had my Aall and Create washi out I would make a background entirely with washi tape.

I stamped the three Tim Holtz cyclists ( I actually tried to stamp and emboss in white onto black but it looked awful)and then tore it out and mounted it on some torn black paper.

The quote is from the same TH set and mounted in the same way.

Matilde's theme at Art Journal Journey this month is 'All About Numbers' - I hope that there are plenty to choose from here.

I think these chaps would be happy at Moving Along With The Times, where the theme is Man/Boy 

As well as meeting up with friends and family we are busy getting things ready for our holiday. New guidelines mean more paperwork!

Thanks for looking, Chris

The number washi tape is super Chris. I really like how you used it. And the 3 men on the bike is a great image. They look perfect and the washi tape. This is a fun take for Matilde’s theme. Have fun with your socializing and journaling. I need to finish my travel journal prep when I get home. Hugs Erika

Dear Chris, I'm very attracted to the quote 😊 And I really like your journal page. A great idea to design the background with washi tape and your three men on the bike look wonderfully nostalgic!
All the best and have a nice June 🌻🐝🦋!

Ooh, such a great journal page! I came upon your project from a different challenge and thought how perfect it would be over at Paper à la Mode Challenge where the June Theme is 'He's Some Guy.' Our basic rules are follow the theme, no back linking, and NO Greeting Cards! If you'd like to play along, you can join us here:

Sorry, Chris, for having to delete the above comment! I made too many typing errors! Anyway, I absolutely love your beautiful page, and especially like that you made the background entirely of washi tape. I love the cyclists and your sentiment. They go perfectly together! Hope you are having a wonderful time. Hugs, Sharon

WOW!!! This is numbers overload, Chris. I love it. The men on the bike are great in numbers, too. Thanks for this amazing entry you have shared with us at AJJ using Matilde's theme.
