Tell Me Why Girls Talk

I love the chorus in Girls Talk by Elvis Costello. When looking at these beautiful face stamps, that song came to mind.

Art Journal - Tell Me Why Girls Talk - Marjie Kemper guest at Paper ArtsyIt's my pleasure to return to PaperArtsy today with this art journal spread featuring four sets of their stamps. Lynne Perrella and my friend Ellen Vargo designed these stamps. All the details and lots of step-out photos are over at PaperArtsy.

    I like the way you showed us how you originally thought to use the three ladies, but then changed your mind. I’m sure you go through that process hundreds of time with each spread, but it’s a fun way to show it!

  13. Anne R on June 14, 2014 at 3:11 pm

    Glorious colours Marjie and I love those LP stamps and great stencilling! Hugs, Anne xx
