Winter Fun

Hi everyone.
Today I have a page to share with you that is all about winter fun. Well, a least winter fun for those who like to ski. These 2 ladies are from TH's Christmas packet this year, which I picked up as it was time for some different found relatives to use while journaling. 
If you look carefully you can see all the numbers stamped on my Gelli printed background. They are pretty subtle until you start to look.  After stamping I used some modeling paste and a snowflake stencil. After that dried I added a die cut snowflake, the ladies with their skis, as well as a die cut deer and die cut greetings. 
I was excited to use a new sheet of number stamps I bought off of Etsy awhile back. It is new to me but it was an old unmounted red rubber set I think put out by Ma Vinci rubber stamps. Ma Vinci hasn't been around for a long time, but I used to love their alphabet and other stamp sets, so I was excited to get these. Even better they were priced well under $10, brand new and uncut. I remember buying a couple of these sets new back in the day and I think I was paid close to $25 when I got them  from Ma Vinci. But to be fair, they are 8.5 x 11 inches so they were pretty large sets.
This  month Yvonne from   Meggy's Way is the hosting Art Journal Journey Her theme is words and numbers, so I am linking up.
OK, enough for me today.
Thanks for visiting.

Lovely, wintry page. Have fun with your bargain stamps, they sound good. Here it's cold, wild, wet and windy. Okay, it's winter! Have a fun day, hugs, Valerie

I love the colors though can do without the snow. 😉 Don't the ladies look jaunty in their matching ski outfits. The ski outfits look a lot like bathing costumes from the 1920s. Enjoy the warm up and stay dry

OMGosh, Erika. I have TWO sets of TH paper dolls and now I need the winter holiday set. Wish I had a coupon for JoAnn's (grin). This is incredible. I love the blue, green, and turquoise. The entire entry screams winter. This is awesome. Thanks for sharing it with us using Yvonne's theme at Art Journal Journey.

I always wanted some of those HUGE alpha letters at Ma Vinci's. It was sad when that company went out of business. The numbers were clear as day to me.

I like skiing on paper much better than in person. So of course I love your page!

So many fabulous background layers Erika, I love your winter fun page. It seems like you are having fun using your gelli plate as well, you are getting super effects with the colour and prints. Your found relatives look ready to have fun as well.
Thank you Erika for adding another great page to my theme at AJJ.

Beautiful wintry page! The colourful gelli plate background looks amazing - I love it 😁. Wishing you a happy Friday and weekend! Hugs, Jo x

Your background is just beautiful with these blue and green colors and the white snowflakes and patterns! The two ladies are adorable - I remember my father's ski - they looked as these pair of skis and he had sticks of bamboo :))
Wish you a wonderful weekend, dear Erika!
