Art Deco journal page

I was so excited that Altered Pages  are partnering Lost Coast designs this month. I was a bit upset as I have been in bed most of this last month due to spinal problems and was afraid I wouldn't get to do a project with them but I found a way to do the project without the need for paints etc and could just use a little table on my bed. This is the result and I am very happy with this journal page using the fabulous Lost coast stamp 'Art Deco face'.

The products used 
Lost coast stamp
White tissue paper  (I recycled )
White pen (from my stash ) 
Scraps of recycled wallpaper and scrap paper
die cut steampunk gears (from my stash )

I began by stamping the gorgeous image on to white tissue paper and I have to say it stamped perfectly first time. 

Next I needed to colour the journal page. I used inks this time and pens rather than paint but either would work. 

The next step was a to place something to fill a little space at the top as I wanted to place the image further down. I used recycled papers and layered up and distressed and glued down with tacky glue.

Next  wrote some text  to the rest of the page in white, I wanted this to show under the tissue image. 

Now I was ready to place the Lost coast Stamped image I added glue stick to the surface of the page and NOT to the image as it was too delicate. After smoothing over and leaving to dry, I got some old gear die cuts I had in my stash and I painted them with copper and dark brown for rusty kind  of effect. I glued once more with tacky glue and left to dry. A fab and fun project thanks to Altered Pages and Lost Coast designs.
