Too many heads...

not enough hats…

Well that can't be said around here. I was just prepping a few pages in one of my small Dylusions journals ready for my epic 23hr journey on Thursday. I take ready prepared backgrounds and add ready cut out images. Sometimes for collage and sometimes from left over samples. I found a few of my ladies heads from the sets With the Right Hat and So many Hats , part of my Couture line, that were simply stamped onto ready inked backgrounds, and added them, ready to be doodled whilst in the air.





So I thought I would show you some examples of the gorgeous stamps in action.

These below were made by the Resident Bit of Glamour, Our Jay.







and these were made by the gorgeous Sandy Poppins




These tags I made for a book class



an unfinished journal page


a finished journal page


and a haven't quite decided yet page.


Two more from Jay just waiting to be used


and a couple of sneaks of some Christmas samples I am working on




I have two of each set as give aways. If you fancy winning one leave me a blog comment below.

Enjoy xx

Hello Dylan,
I am loving the palettes, and the stamps that you have combined to make such interesting pieces, the doodling and finishing makes such a difference to the Art work.

Thank you for posting some started journal pages with the couture stamps. I have wondered how to incorporate them with existing stamps. I like how you used them as elements. Maybe I should take the plunge with these!
