We remember Moments

The prompt on Joggles Art Journal Adventures this week was to start by brayering on the paint, which I duly did. After that I started to collage on vintage images and text  (from an old travel guide to Switzerland) as well as pieces from a Tim Holtz tissue wrap which by chance featured the word Memory. I took that as my leitmotiv for the rest of the spread.
 The background was further enhanced using Distress Crayons and more paint, combined with the small stencil from the January 2015 Stencilgirl Club as well as the small one from January 2017. I also stamped the circles, using one of the stamps from  the latest stamp set  (No. 6) designed by Everything Art for PaperArtsy.
 I had long wanted to use the skull image that I found on an old calendar published by The Metropolitan Museum in NY. It's a detail from a rosary dating from the 16th Century. This seemed to fit in with the words of the quotation by Cesare Pavese: "We don't remember days, we remember moments".
The quotation was stamped on vintage paper using a variety of alphabet stamp sets, and then glued on as shown. A Stabilo All pencil was used around the edges of the torn paper.

Lovely mix and layering, again!

Frieda, I love the brayering over the tissue wrap as well as how you seamlessly incorporate stencilling and stamping into your background. That is an amazing image and suits the sentiment to a tee. Wonderful response to the prompt!
