Today I combined a stamp from VivaLasVegas and a few StencilGirl stencils to make a through back page in my art journal.
Framed #1 by Margaret Applin Damask Medium by Michelle Ward Buildings by Carolyn Dube
I began my page by collaging vintage book ledger sheets and tissue paper on the page. I washed with a watered down coat of titanium white acrylic paint. I then used the Framed #1 stencil to make some division in the page with a pale yellow.
I then took an old photograph of the city Wuerzburg, in Germany, where I was born and did an image transfer. I glued it down.
I then stamped the castle stamp on my journal page because Wuerzburg has a famous castle and actually, I took my daughter to a castle there where we spent the night on her 6th birthday. See the castle stamp from this sheet of stamps from VivaLasVegas in the bottom left corner?
I added some paint elements with the Damask stencil over the top of the photo and along the edge of the journal page.
I added my title to the top of the page in black ~ "City of Birth".
