She flies with her own wings

Hello everybody,

Today I am sharing a mini art journal spread. It took some time to make this because I started with totally different colours, decided I didn't like it and had to paint it over ! Oh well, happens sometimes doesn't it.

I painted the pages with 2 shades of green, a blue and a purple acrylic paint. I used Amsterdam but you could of course use whatever you have. I did mix in a little white here and there to get a gradient. 
I stamped the circles with white paint. Normally I would use VersaMark ink and white embossing powder but I didn't want to heat up the left page too much as I was afraid for the paint on the other side to bubble... 

Next I stamped the typewriter keys with black ink. I always think you have to have black and white on your pages. The face was stamped on photo paper with StaZon; I don't know why I did that because card stock and Archival would have worked just as well. 

I also stamped the sentiment several times on a piece of paper which I then punched circles off. I was going to use it as it was but decided to colour them the same as the background because they stood out to much. 
I adhered everything else to the page and added some thread under the face and that was it ! 

Here's a detail of the stamped image with white paint. It looks totally different to when you use ink or embossing powder. 

Here's a detail of this lovely face. 

I used the following stamps for these pages:

Thank you so much for stopping by today !
