This is really beautiful. Love the stamping!!!
The resist stamping gives a lovely effect!
I've always wanted to try resist stamping- this is a great compliment to your art museum photos- nice page :)

I started out feeling pretty uninspired by these photos, but after I got the idea to use the watercolor technique (to reflect the art museum theme) I had a lot of fun!
If you're not familiar with this technique, all you have to do is stamp your Distress Ink pad on a craft sheet a few times (the squares you stamp don't have to line up perfectly but I like them to line up closely), then add a little water (with a mister or just drop a few drops on with your fingers). Swirl it with a paint brush, dab the paint brush in, and go ahead and paint! I heat embossed my stamped images first to get the resist look.
The arrow and star are from the October Afternoon Night Light stamp set (blast from the past). I used Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. The patterned paper is an old one from a My Mind's Eye pad.
I didn't plan to use the punched circles, but after I got some inky fingerprints on my page I thought they covered them up nicely!
