Stereotype!

 This is a mixture of stamps and hopefully will be ok for at least two challenges I want to enter.

The typewriter doll is by Lost Coast, her sexy legs are by Unity Stamps, the circles and spirals are Rubber Dance stamps, and the type stamps are Craftwork Cards.

You might remember my altered French/English dictionary which I started as part of The Craft Barn challenge last year - well this is another page I have done in that dictionary.
The page is painted with white gesso, the typist is stamped on white card and coloured with Promarkers and a Distress marker, circles and spirals are stamped in Distress inks and the torn edges are inked with Distress ink.
The small Rubber Dance circles have words in them and say: "you are unique and so am I" and "this is different" - I think it is! She has typed - "I am not A Stereotype".
When I got careers advice a very long time ago the adviser thought all girls should become typists, he didn't like it if you wanted to become anything else!
I have a list of challenges I want to enter to try not to forget, and already one has passed by so I have to add a different one for that.

Challenges entered:
That Craft Place - anything mixed media (Sun)
Love to Create - #16 anything mixed media or inky (Sun)
The Craft Barn - pens (Sun)
Lost Coast - circles (you can use any stamps) (7th ASept)

Rubber Dance - colour challenge (Aug - 7th Sept)

  1. Love it!! This is such a cool combination of different stamps. You're the first to quote the tiny text in my circle stamps! I am sure other must have noticed what they say, but never heard a comment about it before. Cool that you've noticed and used the stamps for your entry to our August challenge. Thanks so much!

    1. Thanks Angela, it sort of evolved into a journal page as I went along, I started off thinking of a card then changed my mind and remembered the dictionary!

  7. Wow, Cazzy! Gorgeous journal page! I want to make a journal too but I guess the first page is the hardest because I have yet to start mine. Love the background and the great stamps you used!

    1. I never thought I could do a journal page until I was captivated by the thought of an altered dictionary. It wasn't in alphabetical order so hard to see that I progressed, but I think I did.
      Thank you Kitty!
