Simplicity Unsimplified

The theme this week on Colour Me Positive was all about simplicity, but somehow the pages got away from me in the process of working on them and I completely forgot we were meant to keep it simple! Then I complicated it further by using the quotation I found by Leonardo da Vinci in Italian. The English version reads: "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication".
On the plus side working on this spread in my A4 Dylusions art journal was a good distraction and it gave me a chance to play with my new Stencilgirl Club stencils as well as with some 3 dimensional paints and media. I hope you get a glimpse of this on the pictures.
 Techniques used: collage (with vintage elements from a French dictionary as well as a vintage Robinson Crusoe book, and an Italian postage stamp), rubber stamping, and stencilling.
Materials: acrylic paints in inks, a rubber stamp alphabet set and a small rubber stamp cut from a large unmounted sheet of unknown provenance, as well as the large stencil from the September Stencilgirl Club Boho Collection.
