My base was a torn page from an old atlas, which I lightly brushed with a coat of gesso. This is a great way to prevent curling and warping, and yet you can still see bits of the atlas underneath. I dry-brushed a bit of acrylic tube paints in cyan and pthalo green, and once dry, I stamped a whole "community" of happy houses. Using a finger dauber from Imagine Crafts, I swiftly swiped some Tsukineko Radiant Neon inks over the houses. I used Onyx Versafine to stamp bits from the Perfectly Clear Happy Words set, as I really believe that what makes a house a home, are the people you love inside. I stamped a few borders from the Nathalie Kalbach Studio Marks Cling Set like little roads running through the town. Finally, I stamped a few more designs over the background with VersaMark ink and embossed them with sprinklings of Shabby Pink and Blue, and Spoonful of Rust Fran•tagé Elements. By the way, a fine black liner pen (Faber-Castell Pitt) is perfect to add doodles and frames around points of interest on your page.
