A new journey journal page

Hi, A new year a new journey for 2013. Hope you all had a great turn of the year and wish that all your new dreams will come true.

Here is another art journal page, I love making them.

Step 1: make a background. I dragged gesso over the page with a creditcard, do this randomly and don't cover the whole page. Then take different colours ink and sponge onto the page. As you can see there are darker abnd lighter spots, the darker spots are the spaces where there is no gesso.
Step 2: choose a stamp for the focal point. I choose the men in balloon basket stamp nr. 19009.
Step 3: lay the stamp face down on your work to decide the place where you want it to be (tip: you can stamp the image onto transparant sheet and use this as a guide to decide where you want the image to be).
Step 4: Stamp the image of the men in balloon basket onto the page. And compliment this image with the Hot air Ballon with flags nr. 19006, do this three times. Stamp with Stazon Black.
Step 5: Take a tree stencil and sponge with a lighter colour green.
Step 6: do the same with a darker colour green but replace your stencil a little to the right or left.
Step 7: (top photo) sponge the trees a little with white ink and tiny parts with black ink. Give the little balloons some accent colour with a pink glitter gel pen. And finally stamp the text Time Flies 19008.

Stamps used: men in balloon basket 19009
Hot air balloon with flags 19006
Time Flies 19008
All these stamps can also be found on plate 893
Stazon Black
