Do you happen to have any plans for the summer? Did you choose your vacation destination? What is your favorite transportation to get there?
If you ask me, well I would like to have a summer vacation when I can get lost… everywhere and nowhere… all around the world. Just to roam without any particular destination, just to enjoy what everyday brings, just to have a hot air balloon and float around among those beautiful white clouds. And whenever I feel like just to touch the ground and have some fun. Yeah, that’s my dream vacation.
And how did I get lost on my spread? First I stamped with gesso using Prima marketing’s cartographer map stamp. Than I painted my still white spread with Lindy’s stamp gang flat shots.
So I got a map looking background. Then I had a gelli-arts monotype print that as a circle looked like a globe. So I applied it on my spread and I added some shades around it with pan pastel. I used Prima marketing’s Cartographer paper stash to cut my hot air balloons and my compass. I added some shadows with charcoal to my illustrations.
Finally I added my text with a small rubber stamp.
Hope you’ll get some idea how to plan the coming summer time. I am sharing my piece with Journal 52. Thanks for stopping by.
