Vintage Travel Page

Hello Fellow Junkies!

The Crafty Nurse here with a mixed media journal page using some of the new February Technique Junkie Stamps.  I hope you've had a chance to check out this fabulous release on the Technique Junkie Design Team page, if not, I encourage you to do so.  Pat is also offering all February Release stamps at 15% off until February 8th.

I began my page with Tim Holtz tissue paper then applied distress paint in Vintage Photo, Broken China, and Walnut Stain.  I then added a watery layer of gesso and wiped that around with a baby wipe.  I then took "Houndstooth Check S665" and stamped over the page in Versamark mark ink.  So that you don't get hard edges, just curl your stamp and roll instead of stamping the entire thing.  I then added gold perfect pearls for some shimmer.  Over that, I stenciled gold ferro paste over a Tim Holtz's "traveler" stencil.

The numbers, Paris Tower, and tag are all My Favorite Things dies cut from travel themed paper.  On the tag, I stamped the couple from "Vintage Travel Cases PS012" in Sepia archival ink and the sentiment in black archival ink.  I like the way the fade off on the bottom.

The suitcases are also from "Vintage Travel Cases PS012."  I began by stamping different suitcases with a variety of inks.  I stenciled over them with Art Anthology "Cracked" stencil and then layered that with rock candy distress stickles and let them dry.  I then adhered all the elements with matte gel medium and created shading with a Faber Castell Pit pen in brown. To finish I colored up some wooden planes also with the pitt pen  and called it a Technique Junkies Vintage Travel Page.

Well, that's my page for today, I hope you've enjoyed a a little inspiration.  I'll see you in a couple weeks for more fun with the February release at Technique Junkies.

As always, Happy Inking!

Hey Junkies!!

The Crafty Nurse here with some inspiration from the February Technique Junkies release.  I love all the releases, but this one for me was super fun with the quirky crime theme and of course the travel theme.

For my card today I've used new release stamp "Mug Shot SD638" to create the "Gesso Frame Technique from the Artistic Effects CD."  You might say, where's the gesso???  Its there, it's black gesso!  This is a super fun technique and made for a perfect "cell" for my bad little girl.

I hope you've already checked out the new release, if not, please stop by the Technique Junkies store and the Design Teams Blog for some more great inspiration.  Pat is offering 15% off the release until the 8th, so that is even more motivation!

Bye, Bye for now

The Crafty Nurse!
