On the way to our dreams

I liked the effect of the blue stripes in the previous journal page so I had another go - this time I used mustard seed and wild honey distress stains.

I stmaped Tim Holtz's small Rock Star heart randomly in black archival across the pages, and the sentiment  in butterscotch . 

Many many months ago, I stamped the same stamp on some sticky back canvas that I had die cut and then not known what to do with!  I came across it the other day when rummaging through the scraps box.  The colours are perfect for this page.

I stamped another sentiment (also Tim Holtz) on some manilla card stock, coloured it with wild honey, edging it with gathered twigs from the autumn limited edition set) and cut it into pieces to stick across the pages.

Finally I coloured the hearts & banners with the fab fab fab portfolio pastels (yellow, yellow orange and golden brown) and heat set them.

I've got the whole weekend to play (football apart) - chores be blowed - so hope to have some more fun!
