I chose the former

I'm making journal pages with lots of glitter & gold today. Take a peek on the glitter & gold inspiration posted last week :). When I saw that pumpkin, I knew I had to use my hand-carved leaf stamp & the champagne acrylic paint in my journal. Here's what I made;

I'm still thinking about the rainbow I saw last week. And I found just the perfect quote for it. However, no idea who wrote it. [Can  you help?, so I could give a proper credit]. I definitely chose the former. Enjoy the beauty. Don't think I'll be out shoveling anytime soon :).

I first glued down TYPO tissue papers on blank pages. Applied some champagne-colored acrylic paint with a rubber brayer. When dried, stamped with white acrylic ink and pearl gold poster color. Dripped some white ink and stamped circles with a bottle lid. Lastly, added a few washi tapes, DYMO words and foam dots.

Multi-layers of paint & ink. The white intricate patterns is from hand-carved stamp, dabbed with white acrylic ink. I wrote the quote with a small brush, dipped in black india ink.

With all the layering, my pages are still TOO shiny!. 
LOL. I'll do better next.

I like to extend love & caring thoughts to anyone affected by Sandy. May you stay in comfort and warmth.
