SDC258 - Favourite Quote

This weeks challenge over at Stampotique is, "Favourite Quote".
To be exact.
"What is your favourite quote of all time. Be it funny, inspirational or religious, let's see your favourite quote this week."

Ummmm! I don't really have a favourite quote, I did buy a set of scrapbooking stamps a while ago and chose to use one of those quotes to stamp on my journal page.

Talking about journals, I'd bought a denim journal by Prima on impulse and when I got it home didn't really know what to do with it, it went into the bin and then out again and in again then out, again.

I wanted to use it, really use it, carry it around without getting embellishments caught everywhere  so decided on just stamping and painting the cover. I also manipulated the journal cover and it now is an 8"x8", the inside has a larger pocket which started life as a pair of jeans and a few other tweaks.

Back to the  journal page. Using  8"x8" mixed media paper and a giant A4 stamp I pressed different distress ink onto the stamp then misted it with water, this was stamped on to the media paper which smooched onto the page.
The image was lightly misted again to help blend the colours.
Additional stamping was added in cornflower blue and purple archival ink.
Grey distress ink was used over a Tim H mask to produce the square effect in the background and the inks edged in black soot.
My new stamp which arrived while I was in Florida has finally been used, Yeah!!!!!!
It was stamped onto mixed media card stock and also onto tiles which were arranged to create gaps for added interest.
The tiles were inked with block soot distress ink to take away the plainness.
Both the tiles and the image were coloured with distress ink, once dry the paper image was glued into position and then the tiles were stuck down over the top.

And that is it, hope you like my project for this weeks challenge. If you would like to see more inspiration check out the Stampotique blog here.
