Coffee...Good til the last drop!

Happy Sunday y'all, today, I'm here to share with you a lil' Journal Page I did that was inspired by 
Vicky Papaioannou's "Take Life One Cup At A Time" Journal Page here.   I love Vicky's style and her YT videos are a lot of fun to watch. Be sure to check her out!

so here's my page:

 I started by layering pieces of CS that I cut into squares/rectangles of different sizes and adhering them to my journal using Golden Matte Medium. Once dry, I applied, Fossilized Amber, Carved Pumpkin and Barn Door Distress Paints and blending with a semi wet baby wipe. I then added Ranger Texture Paste thru the TCW "Sketch Grid" Stencil. Once dry, I stamped Prima "Messy" Stamp in StazOn Midi "Claret" and a hexagon stamp (sorry I got it in a swap, so don't know the brand) in Sepia Archival Ink

 I then cut out my teacups from the Silhouette Store 4 tea cup silhouettes by Samantha Walker and the Coffee Sentiment from Coffee Cup by Tanya Batrak. I used BasicGrey's "Curio" paper pad.   I then inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and embossed the "Coffee" Sentiment with clear embossing powder, to get the "liquid" feel of coffee. I then adhered them with Art Basics Soft Matte Gel. I created a shadow around the cups with Vintage Photo Distress Crayon and finished with highlighting from my White Molotow Pen

I stamped the sentiment with Jet Black Archival Ink using Tim Holtz Worn Text and added some white highlights with the Molotow pen. I finished with a stamped border from an old Stampin' Up set using StazOn Olive Green Ink and some white acrylic paint splatters. 

Thank you for stoppin' by, I sure hope I've inspired you to grab a cuppa and craft! ;o)
