I received two more NGS deco books just this morning from Maggi!!! Hooray!! And here there are, finished already...
This first one belongs to Trish Bayley. The background paper is made with Aileen's color mist sprays. I love this stamp, and the size of Trish's book seemed a perfect fit. I stamped the lower left postage image on a slightly different colored paper and layered it on top of the main image. I also added a little silver gel pen to the border on the image itself. I applied Marvy Metallic Markers around the edge of the page.
Here's the back page in Trish's book. One thing is for sure... I'm gaining a lot more confidence doing 'collage style' stamping. The face image in the upper left corner is one I just bought this past weekend at a local stamp convention. I had tried it on another piece I was working on, but didn't like the result. I'm happy with this result.
Here are the pages I did in Sue Wisniewski's book. Something interesting happened when I created the page on the left. I had stamped the images in dark brown chalk ink. I decided to use glossy accents on part of the time pieces. After they dried I noticed the color of ink changed to reveal a little bit of a reddish tint. I really like how it looks. I hope Sue does.
