Art Journal Pages collaboration

For these pages I decided to keep them in a red/black/white theme.  I also decided to use some of my washi tapes on each page.  The stamp I used on this page is by Deep Red.  I have used lots of rubber stamps over the past 20 years and I am convinced that red rubber makes the best impressions.  Now, I love my clear acrylic stamps and I have many wood mounted rubber stamps that I use quite often.  I just lean toward the red rubber because of the detail.  Isn't this lady just fabulous?!!!  The quote here is:  "each day has limitless possibilities and adventure ahead for you".   I thought that just suited this image.  I used red acrylic paint and brushed several swipes across the page leaving lots of white space.  The writing is much more difficult to read here that IRL.  I used two types of washi tape on this:  wide red floral tape and the black/white lines tape.  My accents are black Nailheads.

The red splotches on this page were made with left-over paint I had on a piece of palette paper.  I simply laid it on this page and gently pulled it across the page.  Next I used a ruler and a black pen to make the lines on the page.  This image is also by Deep Red rubber stamps.  I stamped her on scrap, cut her out and adhered her to the page.  I used a dictionary definition for "love" to add to this page.  The stamped sentiment is from Cat's Life Press.  I added two strips of red "ruler" washi tape side by side down the left side of the page.  I also added black Nailheads to this page.

The bird on wheels image is also from Cat's Life Press.  I used red washi tape with a musical score across it for the bird to "sit" on.  I also cut out a bird from some red scrap paper (with guitars on it) and placed it on some definition washi tape.  I stamped Song Bird using my Image Tree antique alphabet.  I drew wavy lines to write my quote on.  I love this quote!  (but I'm a "quote fanatic"!)  LOL  "The woods would be silent if no birds sang except those that sing best."
