Journal on Black

If there is anything that can make me post a blog entry, it's a GPP Street Team Crusade. The current crusade, No. 34 ~ Come over to the Dark Side, is right down my alley. I love journaling on a black background. I've tried it lots of times in the past. As soon as I read what the new crusade was about, I had to head up to my craft table and get busy.

I recently retired a pair of shoes, and as I was tossing them I happened to get a look at the sole. I'm always on the lookout for a good background stamp, and the price was right. I grabbed a knife and cut the sole off the shoe. It became the rectangles stamp I used on this spread in gesso on the left side of the black and in black ink on the other page. I won't be discarding any more shoes in the future without checking out the soles for possibilities.
