I made this page together with my little helper... my 6 year old daughter. I think we managed to make a pretty page together.
We glued down lots and lots of buttons and pearls and when dry we covered it all with gesso. Again we had to with for it to dry and then it was time to spray, add water and dry.
Finally we stamped all over the buttons and some on the background with a text stamp. Love the result

Some examples of text stamps:
You can download my images and make stamps or just make your own using your favorite font and a text that makes sense to you ... or even a nonsens text will be fine if you just use it like me to create texture and interest. I would love to see what you make.
I made this page for a challenge over at The Studio Challenges:Stamping time to get your stamps out and get stamping on your layout, how many stamps can you get on your page?
I went wild with stamps this time. I used over 30 different stamps for my background :) First I stamped with black ink all over the page.
Then I added some color using digress ink and masks.
The I just added some paper, some decorations, stickers and a Photo.

It is time to say farewell to an era now that the youngest kid stops Kindergarden and starts school. A new era in our lives Soon she will be able to read and write and then before we know it the house will be full of teenagers.
I have made three thank you cards for the personell at Kndergarden using Heidi Swapp's fabulous Dreamy collection, Tonic Studio Dies and of course home made stamps.

I love artsy backgrounds with colour and stamps. I started by adding a tin layer of transparent gesso on the PP. then I just quickly added some of my favourite colour turquoise on some of it. Then I went wild using several different stamps randomly over the teal area and some of the rest of the page where I planned to put decorations.
I used Amanda Robinson Studio Love cards 1 and 5th February free shape XoXoXo border as decorations on this page together with some butterfly rub-ons.
In the end I decided I needed just a tiny bit more colour so I splashed some more turquoise in a slightly darker colour, same as the butterflies, on the page.
