GD Berry Bleu 71

 Hi everyone,
I'm very happy and honored about this new GD by
Berry 71 bleu
thank you very much for invinting me :-)

- Books are friends -

a new art journal page in altered art style.
In background I worked with a napkin (books), 
then I used a lot of stencils and stamps.
I love 3D and special effects, here I stamped a face. 
In the upper part I made a cut, used a die for the tag and swirl.
So you can enter in minds of the lady :-)
and my page!


 for this page I used for the first time Decoupage Antique as glue 
and Antiquing Cream Titanium white and I must say I was thrilled about the result, you can see a really good aged effect.
The cream is fast drying but can easily be wiped back from undesired areas.

 No ordinary paper (old book paper, napkin + natural gift paper for the tag)

Happy crafting!!
