Lucky Stars

WOW, WOW, WOW - I am SOOO happy!!

I think it must be my lucky week!!!! I have won stamps in both of the competitions I entered, I can't believe it! I have won one of Tracy Easson's beautiful, beautiful Wonky Tonk stamps and now have just found out that I've also won a Zini stamp (one of Elena Zinski's stamp set with Paperartsy). I've been excitedly waiting for my Wonky Tonk stamp to arrive with the postman today but I think it must take longer than I think to travel down from Scotland - lol!

Well, I am definitely attaching my lucky streak to this art journal page - because I love it so much!!

This is all down to my wonderful Gelli Plate - I just love using it and am really pleased I took the plunge to buy it. I started by basically throwing all the blue paint I had onto the double spread, that's probably about 5/6 different shades and makes, plus some orange, cream and gold. 

I was beginning to hate it and thought about giving up at this stage. But then looked through my notebook that I use to gelli print in and found the perfect page, tore it into 3 strips and added two along the centre and stamped and embossed stars onto the third. Some text stamps and stars made from texture paste, plus a quote and I very happy with the result.

The background has a sheen on it, where I had mixed some Paperartsy Metallic Glaze in with some blue paint - ooh pretty!
