The Golden Age of Travel


Hi Everyone,
I have a really cool Blank Page Muse project for you today. 

Remember when people used to get dressed up to go on vacation? You never used to see people on airplanes in pajamas and yoga pants.  I can't imagine these ladies not looking put together.  I pictured them shopping in Paris and sending a postcard to a friend back home.  
Here are the supplies you need to gather to create your own postcard.

Stamps used:

Other Supplies:
Jet Black Archival Ink
Archival Ink in Coffee and Hydrangea
Distress Collage Medium
Distress Markers
Distress Collage Paper
Distress Ink
Cardstock
Stabilo Pencil
Clear Gesso

Let's get started!
Stamp out your main images across the postcard using Jet Black Archival ink.
Create masks, using post it notes, and stamp all over to fill in white space. 
Once you have finished stamping your background use Distress Collage Medium to apply Distress Collage Paper to various areas of the postcard. 
Add your paperdoll and color in the dresses using Distress Markers(to make sure the ink stays on the image coat your paper doll in clear gesso).   Add Distress Ink to the edges to make the postcard appear to be vintage.  Use your Stabilo pencil to add shadows around the paper doll and around the edges of the collage paper.  
Turn your postcard over and add the Script and postmark stamp to the back.  Use Distress Ink to age the paper.  Color in the postmark using Distress Ink. 
Just like that your card is complete.  
Here are a few more glamour shots.




It was really fun to see how many stamps I could add to the collage feel of the card.  I haven't done a masking technique in a long time and it was fun to play around with it again.  
I hope you feel inspired to play with your stamps too.
