Boardwalk Journal

This is Kate, and I loved playing with the new Boardwalk plate in my art journal.  I started off by using some kraft paper for my background. I spread a layer of gesso using a palette knife and then added some items for texture. I did another layer of gesso and then spayed using summer colors. On this first page I stamped the shells from the stamp plate on top of my chipboard hexagons. I stamped  my sentiment, cut it out and layered it over some twine, lace and fiber.

The background on my second page is completed the same as the first except for the additional embellishments. My image was stamped with Staz-On Ink onto tissue paper and then adhered to stained book paper. I love how it is somewhat translucent adding to the aged appearance. 
I hope you find some fun ways to use this awesome new stamp plate. Don’t forget to join in our Referral Challenge!
