Picadilly Lane

If you love history about transportation, then a London excursion of the under-ground railway sites; Green Park, Picadilly Lane and Hyde Park Corner will surely facinate you. Artistic Outpost's rubber stamps brings to life the nostalgia of London and the glory days of this railway.
I decided to fabricate more of an altered art piece. Gesso, Canvas, an old piece of puzzle. I had fun trying out a  new medium from Scrapbooking Fanatics online store.. Tim Holtz Distress Stains. The green background under the puzzle piece, is a technique which one I found on Technique Junkies Newletter... a stampers best friend..  (December 2009) called "Bleached Swipes" .
 All stamps are from  Artistic Outpost Stamp Collections: Loverly London, London Underghttp://www.artisticoutpost.com/art-rubber-stamps--unmounted.htmlround, Empeheral Backgrounds and Generations Redux.
Special  thanks to Robyn for displaying my altered piece on Artistic Outpost's home page.  Take a tour of Artistic Outpost and view the Gallery and selection of  Rubber Stamps.
grateful to those who share this craft and visit my blog
thank you
