SDC#36: Altering A Book Page - Using Stamps From Any Company

It's time for the next Stampotique Designer's Challenge and this week I got to pick the theme again!  I have been so inspired by all of the art journals that I have been seeing in magazines and online that I thought we should all try a book page!  So this week the challenge is to try altering a page in a book - any book: novel, journal, sketchbook, cookbook, music book, coloring book, dictionary, whatever! Any book counts!  Be sure to grab some inspiration from the amazing design team projects to get you started!

Originally I chose this theme mostly to challenge myself to try something new. That certainly happened and then some... it worked too well!!  I found myself waaaayyyyyy outside of my element with this one but gave it a go anyway. I hope you'll give it a go too - even if you've never tried one before!! This week, the challenge is also open to any stamps - so
"have at 'er" and let's see what you create!! For your chance to win, link up here!!

All stamps by Stampotique Originals:
Femme Collage, Princess, Goddess,
Single Tear, Honeycomb Background
Here's my attempt!!!!  I used a background paper and then stamped the Honeycomb on it and stamped Single Tear on a spare scrap and placed it in the corner.  Then I layered a piece of tissue paper stamped with Femme Collage over the background with glue stick (icky & difficult with tissue paper!!!!!!!!) Next, I popped up the Femme sentiment on another layer and then and added the side and bottom sentiments.  Finally, I grunged everything up with a bit of sponged Ancient Page Lavendar ink. C'est tout!
