Nostalgia... 38

Hi there! Hope you had a great weekend! Jerry was in town visiting Friday - Sunday :) We met Saturday night for dinner and Sunday afternoon for lunch. Of course, time flew by ~ never seems to go that quickly when I am at work except for my 15 minute morning break and 1/2 hour lunch break.

I'm nearly caught up with dt assignments so to change things up a bit, I pulled out my art journal and supplies. I joined along with Faber-Castell monthly challenge where the theme is NOSTALGIA. 
I stamped the Vintage typewriter image from Die-namics Just My Type, stamped it on a piece of sewing pattern tissue paper then adhered it using Liquitex Medium.
 To stamp the word NOSTALGIA, I used the individual letters from Die-namics Let's Toast Die & Stamp Set. I spelled out the word, then stamped it as well on a piece of tissue paper. All the randomly stamped text is from a stamp from Die-namics DC First Class Friend.
There are many layers and lots of texture on this page! I combined various Faber-Castell Gelatos, Faber-Castell Stamper's Big Brush Pens, modeling paste, ink, paint and stencils.
To create the circles, I used my homemade stencil that I die cut using various Die-namics Circle STAX Set 1 and Die-namics Circle STAX Set 2 dies.

Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoy your day / evening!
Hugs,
Mona
