Shakespeare - junk journal page #20

gessoed cardboard foodpackage + images out of dictionary = 

Gelliprinted over it with a letterstencil in 3 different colors (brown, yellow and orange). You don’t really see the letters but I’m pleased with the background.
Because one of the images was of Shakespeare I took my inspiration from that.
I took a piece of a doiley, sprayed it with red Dylusions and glued it on some double sided carpet tape, added gold glitters in the empty spaces and glued it in the corner of the page.
On the other side I added a lace border with a stamp (from Kaiserkraft I believe) and added a vintage looking lady ( a free printable from Vintage Emphemera Garden -  just sign up for the newsletter).
Made a flower out of bakingpaper which I use when tea dying paper to age them, used another piece of this bakingpaper to add the journaling stamp on which I wrote a quote from Shakespeare:
It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.
I tried to write in what I think is an old fashioned way. I had an oops while glueing this piece with some gel medium as the marker wasn’t waterproof, so as a result of this it smeared, but this only adds to the vintage charm, don’t you think?
In the upper corner I added a heartshape made out of hot glue which was laying on my desk from an experiment using it as a stamp.

junk used:
cereal package
leftover pieces of dictionary pages

  1. So many great layers and they all add to the vintage look!

    1. Thanks Ruth, it took a while from beginning to finish, I think this page is sitting on my desk for more than a month, but sometimes things just need to ripe.

  2. Beautiful colours all working together in harmony to make a beautiful page. I like th eidea of making a glue gun stamp ;) The quote is always a good one :D
