That's Amore

Hi everyone, today I'm sharing another journal page that I've made for the Art Journal Journey - If Music Be The Food Of Love.

In my Gecko Galz collection of images I found an image of some script with the word amore, straight away all I could think of was Dean Martin singing the song That's Amore.
I enlarged the image and printed it, I tore round the edges and glued it to my journal page. I painted the page with acrylic paint, I let some of the paint drip down the page. I enlarged one of my photos of the moon and printed it and glued it to the page. I stencilled some stars using some Imagination Crafts Sparkle medium. I went a bit mad with the stars so I tore some bits of music from some tissue wrap and glued them over some of the stars. I printed a photo of Dean Martin and glued him to the page. The words are the first line of the song and I did them on the computer.

A close up of the Sparkle Medium stars.

Thank you for looking.
xxx Hazel.
