I don't know if it is because I was in such a crappy mood today that my pages are so dark - or if the pages just turned out that way because of the project.  Either way, I guess it is what it is.  I found my 7 Gypsies Paper - Global - and decided to just make some taps with the old world maps.  I distressed everything because it is suppose to have a vintage feel - but it ended up all dark colors.

Anyway, I made up my mind that I would roll with what I do in the journal - because it is for experimentation.  (However, there were 2 pages I really, really, I mean really - hated).  So, those 2 pages were gessoed over as if the pages were never made.

Items Used:

Paper:  Seven Gypsies Global; Bo Bunny Week-end Market Collection
Inks:  Ranger Distress Vintage Photo; Staz-On Black; Prismacolor Pencil Crimson Red with Gamsol
Mediums:  Art Basics Heavy White Gesso
Stamps:  Limor Webber Rugged Edges
Miscellaneous:  Prima Art Journal (altered); Hot Glue Gun; Beacon's Fabri Tac; Pop Dots; Tim Holtz Swirl Hook; Flying Unicorn Eiffel Tower charm (which is crooked in the picture - which I didn't catch until I'd already loaded them to the blog); Suede Strips for the ties on the tags

And, that about sums up the journal pages.  I need to do something to lighten up my mood and colors!!

Thanks for taking a peek!
