Mixed Media Playtime & GDT

Hi Crafters,

I was lucky enough to be asked to join in at the Try It On Tuesday challenge as a Guest Designer this week.
Their theme is...
USE A STENCIL OR TWO

I've been wanting to do more mixed media projects for some time now and a few weeks ago I created a Journal Cover to hopefully house my mixed media projects that I create in the future (see this post HERE) So this is my first page which initially was going to be folded in half to fit my journal but now that it's finished I can't bear to fold it! I should have made it in two halves but hey-hoe...learning curve!

I used 5 stencils in all, sometimes inking through them and other times to add texture paste.
The stamps are by Lindsay Mason which I stamped on to old book pages, water-coloured and fussy cut.
The sentiment comes from the same stamp set.


 Here are the stamps I used 


Challenges I'd like to enter:
SSS Monday Challenge Recycle (book pages)
Crafty Catz - #542 ATG/Use 3 of your Favourite Colours (Red, Green, Gold)
Allsorts - #615 A Stamped Image
Creative Moments - #210 ATG
More Mixed Media Challenge - ATG opt. Green



Thanks for stopping by today, hope you have a great day.

Lorraine
