Challenge inspiration with VLVS

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my August VLVS inspiration post.
I made it in my usual Mixed Media style using lots of mediums, paints, stencils and ... stamps, sure.
Also this inspiration is in black and white, I thought that adding a bit of color on the corner can be interesting. So I used stencil to make the texture over stamped Dictionary page  (keeping the main image of Businessman  Silhouette on the corner). The Film strip that was on the inspirational piece gave me the words of my art piece: Life is not an old movie, but a new rainbow dream.
Totally my own quote, believe me... 
The quote was made with my very old letter stickers and as those became totally non adhesive, I added a thin line of glaze to keep them in the place.

And now for some close- ups too:
I used Sepia black ink and not the  real black one, so you see a bit of dark brown on the background stamping. The man image was outlined with white paint around to make it " standing out".

The word life is a die cut  that I glued on my piece.

And here is a full sentiment  (you sure can use it, but remember me if you do so)

And here is a list of stamps I used for this inspirational piece:
 Businessman Silhouette Item 19418 Plate 1440
Film strip Item 18921 Plate 1428
Dictionary page Item 19015 Plate 890
I enter this to Pixels and Paper inspirational challenge and I this it's a great fit!
