Art Journal - Page 164

Hi everyone!

Another art journal today - yay!

Today I wanted to create a vintage page using a stamp set that I should use more often, some dies I rarely use, and of course the oxide inks again LOL. I also wanted to use up some of my off-cut pages as my folder is overflowing! There are a lot of layers and a lot of elements on this page so it's a bit longer than I usually upload.

ICAD 2017 - Day 30 - Gyroscope

Hi everyone!

Googling 'gyroscope' I felt that the image I chose needed to be spinning in 'space', so that's what I tried to portray with my background before I then adhered the gyroscope image. It gave me a chance to play with my new distress oxides!
