STAMPOTIQUE DESIGNERS' CHALLENGE 105: ANYTHING BUT A CARD

Wednesday is always such a fun day for me because it is the day that the Stampotique Designers' Challenge is posted.  Today, Nellie van Leeuwen is the host and she has an interesting twist on the challenge:
“When I participate in challenges, especially when I’m short of time, I tend to make cards. They are usually a quick and easy thing to make. So this week I challenge you (and myself) to make ANYTHING BUT A CARD for the Stampotique designer’s challenge. I made  a double journal page in my little art journal. I’m very curious to see what you come up with!
Several weeks ago, I won a handmade art journal on the blog of artist Judy Shea called "The Key to My Art" (you can see the journal here). Take a moment to check out all of Judy's mixed media creations (as well as a few unusual recipes when the spirit moves her)!  I decided today was the day to break in Judy's journal.  I have some fun text stamps from Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions collection from Ranger, and that was my inspiration.  I am a Pinterest addict, so I went there and searched for "free vintage printables," and came up with this sassy lady--perfect for my journal page!  I used Collage Pauge from Traci Bautista to adhere musical tissue paper (another gift from a friend in Belgium), then adhered my lady.  A few rub-ons from Tim Holtz' Idea-ology Remnant Rubs, my quote, a date stamp and done!  Here's my entry for this week's Stampotique Challenge--and it is anything but a card!!



I appreciate your visit today, as well as your comments!  

Joy to you!
