Journal page

Good evening friends
Wow, what happened to the weekend? Can't believe it's Sunday evening already. Well; after the excitement and anticipation of the last few days today has been back to the reality of deadlines! Creative my work may be but deadlines none the less! Still I have managed to have a little play in my journal.......
 I used my border stamps to create pockets on the right hand side and closed the pages with double sided tape. I took the main image from a magazine and adhered it to the page.
 I've used Distress embossing powder and black embossing powder, torn some of the image off too. I did start working over it with a black marker but did not like that. Luckily Alcohol ink blending solution took it away and I kinda like the little bits you can still see and the slightly worn areas of the picture too so that's a bonus!
 All the pages were coloured with Distress Stains and using my new background stamps I worked on all the tags, stamping with Archival inks and Distress inks too.
 Here are the four of them.
 I love this one!
I also like the way my stamps work with other stamps too, like this script stamp from Tim Holtz!
I've still to add the rest of the journalling for the page, but it's titled The key to Wisdom.....
Hope you all have a great evening!
