Darkroom Door Stencils & Script Vintage Journal Page

Hi friends!  Happy Mixed Media Monday from the TFS gang!  Autumn Clark from SewPaperPaint with you today to share a vintage style mixed media collaged journal page featuring exquisite products by Darkroom Door.  This page comes towards the end of an upcycled address book that I've used as a journal and shared on my blog for the past couple of years.  You can find a link to the other spreads HERE.  A general theme has been to build a collage around a Tim Holtz found relative photo that visually reminds me of a part of my own past.  My pages are cutout chipboard that I've gessoed and added spray inks onto.

I used the Handwritten Script small stencil and texture paste and sprayed with inks while the paste was still wet.  This way it soaks up the color and adds contrast to the page.  I then layered vintage papers and more Tim Holtz ephemera, with some stamping using my FAVORITE Darkroom Door Abstract dots stamp #7.  I made a fun little flap to add journaling with by folding a large tea bag in half.  Inside I adhered an old experiment with the Wildflowers small stencil.  I shared that post HERE for Stamps & Stencil a few years ago.

Here's a shot of the opened tea bag flap...

I used a piece of brown paper packaging to stamp the Dreams Quote stamp onto to coordinate with the tea bag.  The circle piece was from the above mentioned tutorial and can be made with the Circles stencil.

I hope these journal pages have inspired you to play with your stamps and stencils today and make something you love.  Enjoy your week!  - Autumn
