Stampotique SDC25: Faux Barnwood Technique

My Double page  Week 8 Art Journal for UK Stampers is also my entry into the Stampotique Faux Barnwood Challenge. The Faux Barnwood Technique is from Pat at Technique Junkies and is great to do. I linked to the pdf yesterday so here is the website today and the technique for Faux Barnwood is here. I used Olivia and Oh My Dear stamped onto a dictionary page that was already washed with Dylusions Teal and White and then I used watercoloured pencils to give them a hint of colour.
 The purple background is all Faux Barnwood and the Teal page has a Teal barnwood piece and scraps of purple. I made the title and journaling with sharpies and sakura gelly roll and the the old pieces of book are from my collection of old and vandalised dictionaries that school was throwing out. The prompt for the UK Stampers challenge was BOOKS
1 List your top 5 books... what & why
2 Use a quote from one of them on your page.
3 Use an old book page as your background.

As I am such a bookworm I could not possibly narrow it down as I am a very eclectic reader and not a book snob - hate that. Read what you what and what makes you happy.
