1 stamp 6 ways - Neil

Here's your 4th sample featuring the Katzelkraft Mini Arch. Neil made an Art Journal page using the Arch as bird houses with little windows... to hide secret messages?
Here's how Neil made his page.

For the background I swiped Distress Dtains over the whole page and when dry adhered two skeleton leaves to the page with matte multi medium. 

To make the "bird houses" I stamped the arch five times and cut four of them around the outside. The fifth one I cut out the inside and used it as a mask so I could stamp the faces inside them. I used a craft knife to cut around the three sides of each one to create a door. I cut a small piece of card to put on the back of them to give me a surface to write on. It is a bit fiddly to glue but I used the thinnest double sided tape and it was just narrow enough to fit!

I placed them onto the page and glued down.

Here you can see how they open for your hidden journalling.

To finish the page I drew in posts; added the journaling and drew a frame around the page. Lastly I stamped the birds flying randomly across the pages.

The journaling reads " Come back to roost oh my artistic muse. Your room is ready, so do come and stay, even if only for a while..."
