How Sentimental

Hello Lovelies,

Today I have an entry for Stampotique's recent challenge which is "sentimental". And the page I'm about to share with you was one that I didn't think I would share with anyone because it is one of my most personal art journal pages I feel I have ever made. 


I made this page to document something important that happened to me, my boyfriend left to go to Italy to work for 5 months and I am so happy and proud of him but a part of me also felt lost in a way. Without going into further details; this is why this page was made.


I used so many different paints and sprays to create the background along with many different stamps. I used Minky girl stamp and colored her in with copics. 


The sentiment is written using rub-on letters.


And I used a number stencil by Dylusions with modelling paste to add random numbers all around the pages. These numbers represent the time and days he will be away.

 This page is very sentimental to me and I hope Stampotique members will like it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Serena

  5. I love it Serena, it's beautiful and bright. I hope that he is very successful while he is away and that the time goes quickly for you. You will have to do a celebration page once he's home again. Thanks for joining us again at Stampotique. x

  6. Five months will hopefully fly by & you will be together again very soon. Keep the proud feeling you have, the belief in yourself to have fun and it's ok while your Belov├ęd is away to live your life.

    A very raw sentiment from your heart, glad you shared your amazing pages. You are awesome!!! :-) xxx
