Glimmer of Light

Good morning, and Happy Tuesday. It's my turn to share a visible Image project with you, and I've been feeling very bold!  I've made a journal page, straight into the book without a safety net. 

This is the best photograph I can get as we're slightly lacking in the old daylight department.

This is lots of Distress Ink blended in patches, with some stencilling in the same colours.  I liked it, but boy was it bright, so I toned it down a bit with some gesso through a stencil. The edging stamp is from the Music on World Off plate.
Time for some fun now in building up the background. I've used Ranger Archival inks to stamp my quotes from Imagine, Dream, Inspire, and there's also circles from Universal.
I've been wanting to use the Glimmer of Light plate for a while now, but I've been in Halloween (thankfully gone) or Christmas (OMG it's getting close) mode for weeks, but today was playday!
Don't you just love this moth! He's just stamped onto the background and coloured in places with Stabilo pencils. I stamped the light bulb into the previously stamped circle, then stamped the circle again and embossed in white.

And this is the quote, stamped and embossed with black fine EP. I've just highlighted bits and bobs with stencils and Portfolio pastels. This was such fun to make once I'd got over the terrors of stamping in my shiny new journal.
