Thank you to you all

Tis the time to say dear friends: Thank you to you all for being here with me at my blog, for following me and for visiting me. Thank you to you all for inspiring me, for encouraging me and for moving me forward on my art journey. Thank you from my heart. As I know better way to show my appreciation I do it with what I love the most, an art journal spread only for You out there:

I worked in my altered book and I coloured a page with pan pastels using blue tint and colour.

I used a gelli arts print made on tissue paper that I applied with soft gel onto my spread.

Next I added some stamping with Stampotique’s In stitches (#8118) with forget me not archival ink and some shading with pan pastel blue shade.

On a scrap paper I stamped Daniel’s Weasel (#6115) with Versamark and tuxedo black and then coloured it with perfect pearls.

With some scrap pieces of 7 dots studio and canvas fringe I created a collage on my spread. I added some self-altered found object.

Finally some more details:

I am sharing my spread with Stampotique designers challenge Anything goes week 3.

Hope you enjoyed my steps and if you did, just join me on my further journey in 2015 as I can tell it goes on. Wishing all of you a fabulous holiday times!
