Hello! I can't believe it is June tomorrow, times flies, which is partly what the art journal page I am sharing today relates to. I used various Tim Holtz Sizzix dies, stamps and papers.
The idea for this page came from wanting to use this juggler stamp together with the Big Ticket die. The stamp works perfectly together with the sentiment about holding on to your dreams, from the same set. I typed some journaling and cut into strips and picked other products to support my theme. The background is from the new resist Motif paper, covered with Picket Fence Distress Stain. Love all the patterns in this paper pad. When the page was finished, I adhered it to a page in my Small Creative Journal.
The Big Ticket was die cut from watercolour paper and I stamped the main stamp with Jet Black ink. After watercolouring with Distress Inks, the sentiment was stamped as well as the stars using Tree Bark ink. Finally, I gave the ticket some texture with the great Specks stamp and inked the edges.
Behind the ticket there a piece of red kraft-core cardstock, which was embossed with the Drapery folder, sanded, inked and misted with a little bit of Biscotti Perfect Pearls. I cut the lower edge along the scallops. I also die cut a Tattered Curvy Banner from patterned paper, added two words with Chit Chat stickers. There is also an ephemera ticket.
At the top of the page, I used a bus image cut from a larger patterned paper and an ephemera game piece.
Thank you for looking! And remember to hold on to those dreams!
