This week over at STAMPOTIQUE the lovely Valerie is challenging us to alter any page in a book . I belong to an art group in my area and we are all working on journaling books so I was happy to use my Stampotique stamps.
I have only done a few books and this one is different for me. The book is an old encyclopedia and the pages are painted with gesso and acrylics. I bordered the frame with scraps of dp and book pages . I used magazines for the cut outs and word stickers, punches and doodling. This book is all about techniques and ideas to try in my art work. I used "I can see clearly" #6091 girl from STAMPOTIQUE colored up with copics on the side:
"the simplest things give me ideas" #9083...This is a quote by Joan Miro...I was always told by my high school art teacher that my work seemed to remind him of this artist... :) So I love the quote.
challenge this week is open to use any stamps so why not give it a try? The prize is $30.00 to use in the Stampotique store. TFL!
