Architecture - Mixed Media Mayhem

This journal page began as an experiment with new stencils - Crafter's Workshop Template 6"x6" - City Grid and Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions Stencils - Shattered and a new set of Ranger inks.  I added impressions from homemade stamps in circles and zigzags.  What emerged was a geometric pattern that called for an overlay of map images.  In my stash, I found my tourist maps of Hanoi that had the blue and yellow needed.  An old art book provided the text.  I scanned architectural images and converted them to stamp outlines with photoshop and printed them on transparencies.  What I really enjoyed was the unpredictable randomness that led me in what seemed to be obvious directions.  Love art journaling!


  1. So many amazing layers Linda, and the idea of printing on transparencies as stamps is great!

  2. Love those layers - really lovely pages!
