STYLE IS ETERNAL for AJJ and headgear for MM&M

Hope you've had a good week and looking forward to the weekend.

This is todays page for AJJ 'Elegance and Grunge' theme  
A little grunge and some elegance too - this page has an Aquamarker background - the sort where I scribbled/doodled the markers on a piece of cellophane and spritz with water or breathed on it and then press that down onto the paper to transfer the ink. 
I then muted the colour down in places with some white gesso.
The mannequin, quotes and chandelier stamps by 'Kanban' ( I think). I stamped the mannequin on tissue paper and coloured with Inktense pencils. Other messy/grungy stamps that I used are by Crafter Companion and a set from The works.

I made a 'Moo' for MM&M where the theme is 'headgear'. I used some small stamps from an old set of 'Hats and Gloves' by Hero Arts. I always find it challenging (but fun)to work on such a small size - and it makes good use of some little stamps that sometimes get over looked. I used Prima water soluble crayons on b/g and the other colour is pencils and white Posca pen.
Thanks for stopping by
Have a great weekend..

  1. Gorgeous journal page and love that little moo, always good to use things that are hiding on the shelves! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Wow.. a romantic piece for AJJ and I adore this charming Moo! Have to pin it to our MM&M Gallery on Pinterest!
    Thank you for joining Moo Mania & More Gill!
    Hope your weekend is nice so far- here it's a bit grey and rain will come for sure... not as nice as we wished for tomorrow as we celebrate Mother's Day here in Austria and my family wants to make a BBQ for me on the porch. We will see....

    Happy weekend!

  3. Its a beautiful dress and so elegant, you added great quotes as well to your fabulous page.
    I loved the tiny images on the Moo. I think we all have such stamps lurking and waiting to get used.
    Have a good weekend.

  9. Hi Gill you are at it again, turning out amazing pieces of art. The first one with the grunge and then the elegance is just stunning I love how you have stamped and coloured on tissue paper. You will be pleased to hear I have some that I can colour on now.
    As for your tiny head wear I think I would struggle to find anything in my stash, love what you have done on such a small scale. xxxxx Ria
