Turkey has the key to paradise - junk journal page #19

After watching a Carolyne Dube video on using scraps I was so energized, I just had to grab my scrapbox


And get started.
It was so much fun picking scraps


and gluing them randomly on the page.


I also added some color with oil pastels and some writing (words that came to mind when thinking of our holiday last week)

I wanted to add a stencil or mask and suddenly I knew it had to be a Mosk, so I set myself to making one myself, this wasn’t easy but I am satisfied with the result.



And this is the finished page, just added some more stenciling with an Arabian style stencil (to use up all the blue paint I had still on my palette), an attempt at some Arabian writing and a key and red moon embillishment to top it all of.


junk used:
* scrappaper
* ribbon from a gift package
* outline of a punch-out

  2. I like this a lot! Wondering where you found the Arabian style stencil? Carolyn Dube is a great place to go to for ideas and inspiration!

  3. What a fabulous page. All that colour is so awesome, but what amused me was the almost, 'throw away comment' of, setting yourself to making a mosque stencil! Lol! Amazing! You wanted it and you did it! And Magnificently too! No little house for you. A mosque! Lol. Can you tell I'm amazed, and totally impressed? :) What is it made/cut from? How long did it take you to make? :o)

    1. The stencil is made out of clear plastic, I think it is originally used for overhead projectors (the package of 100 costed me 16 euro, so each stencil cost me just cents and labor time and patience) This stencil took me about 45 minutes to make.
