A Page in my Journal and A Book for Quotes and Sayings.

I found this stamp by Darkroom Door and fell in love with it! I love doors, doorways and gates (not sure why does that make me weird?) Anyway I thought I would do a journal page with it and this is what I came up with.
The door is stamped onto tissue paper (each door is painted a different colour using Claudine Helmuths paints while these were drying I put some white gesso onto the pages in my journal dried with a heat gun and added some butterscotch paint dabber with an old credit card.
The house numbers are from Tims bingo embossing folder (silver tape onto card, embossed and painted, left about 30 secs and wiped with a tissue).
The tissue doors were applied with multi medium (under and over the top).
The words are stamped straight onto the page with PSX pixie alphabet stamps.
I love to write down quotes to use on my work. So I thought I would make a book to put them all in!
The covers are covered chip board (patterned paper from K and Co covered in white gesso and ink) the clock is a Tim embossing folder (sprayed with colourwash and cosmic shimmers in blues/turquoise, the stamp is from Creative Expressions, the flowers are Prima hydrangers sprayed with the same sprays as before and lots of bling and beads too!

All the pages are sprayed with the same colourwash and cosmic shimmers as before.

Each has some saying or quotes added either on tags, directly to the page, some are hand written, some on the computer (on Saffmat), some are stamped.

There is still lots of room to add more!

All sorts of bits will be added as I add more quotes/sayings.

All the main pages have tabs on the sides.

Some will have pockets to hold things too.

And lots of the tags can be moved to reveal other quotes underneath!

I had lots of fun making this and everytime I find another quote/saying I will add it to the book!

Thanks for popping by and having a look!
