VLVS! October challenge: we're all mad here

Over on the VLVS! blog there is another monthly inspiration board challenge.  Here is the page I did for the challenge.

The page is from the journal I made form booklets I get in the mail from a local casino here in Vegas. I did 2 layers of black gesso by DecoArt media. after that dried I used a strip stencil from Stampin' up! from back in the day. I used Dylusios paint in Bubble gum pink. After that dried I used the numbers part of the tissue pape by Tim Holtz. I glued that down with matte medium. I was hoping it would melt into the page more than it did.. 

Next I took some rubber stamps that I thought I wanted to use on the age. I stamped one on tissue paper and on dictionary paper. And with various black ink pads to try and get good crisp images. The Memento worked the best. My Verafine is all dried up. :(  I decided to use the images I stamped on the dictionary paper. colored 2 of the images with color pencils. I did add some orange craft paint to the bottom of the page. Glued them down on the page with matte medium. 

I used my white gelly roll pen and outline the pink stripes. I did some splots with black and white Americana paints. Finally I wrote on a price of cardstock "We're all mad here" glued the words to the page. and outlined it with black Bic pen. 

I will have a process video up on this page in the coming days.
