I began by cutting out a Texas and New York State shape from the black background paper using my electronic die cutting machine and some svg files from the web. I took a circle stencil and used the map stamp from the “Happy Travels” collection and stamped some maps in black on the black background for some tone on tone.
I splattered some paint and then layered some papers, die cother and stickers. I left a large card for journalng that pulls out from the side of the page.
In contrast to my kinda gloomy page, I have been waiting to do this next page for such an long time. The Happy Travels epoxy stickers and the title stickers both have the phrases “I love you in the morning. I love you in the afternoon. I love you in the evening”. Now, being a mom of a 3 year old, I know that those are the lyrics to the song skinamarinky dinky dink, which my daughter and mother happen to love singing to each other!
I was thinking of the color of the sun in the morning, afternoon, and evening, so I used some circles with those colors and added phrase stickers to them. I also cut out a Vintage Blue peek-a-booain’t I some heart shapes and layered them on the circles, too.
