WELCOME

I thought I would have a change from cards today and get a little inky in my small journal, well my first page in my small journal to be precise.  I still can't quite get my head around journaling but I've tried.  I try to approach it the same way as I do a card but I still find it a little difficult to get my journaling head on LOL.
I created this piece for the Stampotique Designers Challenge which is to use the colours ORANGE and TURQUOISE.  I did plan to enter this to WELCOME all the new Design Team members to Stampotique but I have missed that deadline by a day but I thought I would still say a BIG WARM WELCOME to you all.
The background was created with Gesso and Altered Originals sprays.  The houses are from the Stampotique stamp Row of Houses (available from The Stamp Attic) , stamped onto white card coloured with DI spiced marmalade and broken china. White dots have been added with a white gel pen to lift the images from the pages.  I have added hand stitching, hearts, and buttons to complete my pages.  Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x
