Be like a Postage Stamp

 Last week's prompt on Colour Me Positive 2017 was: perseverance. I found a quotation I loved and that gave me a great excuse to go wild with the postage stamps. It reads: "Be like a postage stamp. Stick to one thing until you get there" (Josh Billings). I started with collage and used images from a magazine, pieces of a 7Gypsies tissue wrap as well as tissue wrap by Tim Holtz. I also added deli paper that I had previously stencilled using the large stencil from the November Stencilgirl Club , the L435 Ancient Marks as well as L301 Circles Circles stencil all by Stencilgirl Products. Vintage music paper was also added to the mix.
I also used the following stencils in the background: L467 Amsterdam and L470 Granada, both designed by Nathalie Kalbach for Stencilgirl Products.
 A stamp from the Kaffee Klatsch stamp set designed by Nathalie Kalbach brought a circular element to the pages..
The quotation was printed out from my computer onto vintage paper. I also added some lovely gold paint (from Pebeo) to the spread as well as those gorgeous postage stamps from France.
I worked in the A4 Dylusions art journal for this spread.

Frieda I LOVE that quote - may use in my upcoming Mail Art class - and your spread is wonderful (as usual :) )....

what a great quote-I had not heard that one before! And of course, your pages as usual are filled to the brim with vibrant colors and layers!
