I am really loving the bright colors so this time instead of grunge I went with brights. Maybe that's why it was so tough.
First thing I did with this page was used some wall spackle from Home Depot and a template to create the dimension on the left hand side of the page. That needs to dry for quite some time and at the time I had no idea what I was going to do with the page, I just wanted to try the spackle. haha! So it's been sitting around for quite some time. When I got the journal challenge and saw that it was Steampunk, I knew that I wanted to use this page for it. The page was completely white so I sprayed it with a combo of Dyan Reaveley sprays and the Tim Holtz color wash sprays. It made for some bright goodness! I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Black Soot to go over the spackle and make it stand out much better.
After that I worked on stamping the background a little with misc stamps and also used black paint and a gear stencil.
Everything else just kind of came here and there for the page, I wrote the words out on cardstock and cut them out all crooked and made "tickets" out of the words on the left side.
There is a mixture of Tim Holtz Die cute and Wendy Vecchi stamps for the page to come together.
