Do you want to travel the world?

Hi everybody

At  Anything Goes  this week our theme is Travel or Around the World.  So lots of scope here for a variety of work.

I had had this idea about getting a bit messy, well I certainly did that with gesso, glue, ink and paper!

This is an 8x8" card.  I have covered it wit brown Bazzill, and then I took a piece of plan card, and added various bits of printed paper to it.  I painted over with a diluted mixture of gesso, and then overdstamped with from french test and a swirl.  My main piece is coloured with distress inks, and then I stamped the tickets down the side, the lady traveller image, and masked her and stamped the Eiffel tower and the Learning Tower of Pisa.  Stamps are B Line and Tim Holtz.  I added a prima flower and some pearl brads in the corners.
