I use journals to try techniques and test my stamps.  On this page of my journal I was playing with texture and numbers to see when stamped what they looked like. I must say I am pleased with my number stamps! In addition to the numbers there is a set of lower case alphas.

Starting with a white page in my Clairfontaine journal I sprayed it with Sandlewood LuminArte Shimmering Mist. With two sizes of Punchinello from Gauche Alchemy stencil the background.  Inks from right to left: ColorBox Fluid Chalk Burnt Sienna, CTMH Red Barn, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Barn Door and ColorBox Fluid Chalk Alabaster. 

On top of the stenciled backgroung randomly stamp the numbers to see how the look.  The journal paper had a little texture and a couple look better on smooth paper so I stamped them on ledger paper and adhered them to the journal page. 

HAVE FUN WITH NUMBRS!!!!

The numbers are sold as PLATE 1430 only.

Welcome to my neck of the woods...Christmas fantasy-playland! Love your page, lots of layers and texture tied up in a traditional color palette. I had a hard time not getting this...but I've been doing Christmas every week all year, so I was thrilled to stock up on Halloween. :)
