Another junk journal spread.

  I wanted to share what I was doing with my pages of upcycled cardboard with my friends at the UK Stampers Network. So I used this spread ...

Amazing Race Art Journaling Challenge Leg 2

I decided to enter into the Amazing Race Art Journaling Challenge on Facebook

Leg Two is France!

I have been very tempted to join in the detours too but so far time has got away with me...

In fact when I see the fabulous creations of other racers
 I wonder if I should really be joining in - I am really a beginner at journalling! 

Anyway my Leg Two page started with a baby wipe blended page using three colours of Artsy paints:

It amused me to see that quote on the bottom of the newspaper...

It made me look into French realism...which was a bit of a detour!

My next step was to add scraps of paper to my pages - some with French script on them. I sponged another paint colour around the edges of these. Two triangles of acetate were the two final scraps...I then overstamped with various Tim Holtz 'French' stamps and two French phrases in Stazon. The postage stamps were stamped on a scrap of DP, cut out and glued in place.

Happy Crafting!
