Lesley Alexander's page in Joan Mannix's "HOUSE" Journal.

So this month it's my turn in Joan's journal which has a theme of "HOUSE".
Not knowing where to start I decided to begin with a distress oxide background using 3 colors Peacock feathers ,antique linen and abondoned coral.

This page has literally sat like this for the last few weeks waiting on a brilliant idea to pop into my head. I have had the Amsterdam stamp set from darkroom door and had never used it. I bought it because my mum is dutch so this stamp set was going to be my theme.

Instead of stamping the images directly onto my page I decided to stamp them seperatly and collage them onto my page. I have then filled my pages with stamping, collaging and washi tape.

I have finished off with the stitching doodling onto the page and stamped images. 

Hope you like my page
