Art Journal page by Titbelsoeur

Hello happy art journalers !

Today let me show you a new art journal page.
To make the background, I have glued paper squares on to my page, coloured it with yellow and stamped Decay Swirl Background and Swirl Background Open from Backgrounds with Distress ink to have a smooth background.

Then I stamped Decay Journaling Stamps #1 and Decay Alphabet from Journaling, text from Time and Keys in Time and the butterfly from Butterflies #2 in Butterflies & Birds, all  with black Archival 

The Blossom stamp from Debbie Cotton I stamped on to a cardboard and scraped it, then coloured it with Promarkers and sticked it to the background :

and here is my page :

Thanks so much for stopping by,
your comments are very much appreciated, 
here, on my blog, or on the Artistic Stamper's Facebook page.
I hope that my page did inspire you and that
you will participate in our October challenge
 to win some fabulous Artistic Stamper stamps.

sprinkled with gold embossing powder.
Around the edges i used crackle paste and coloured with 
purple paint.
White embossing powder was sprinkled over and heat set.

I've created small card size art piece with autumn colors.  For background colors I've used distress paints and inks. Next to that I stamped with The Artistic Stamper calligraphy mat and swirls stamp set. Clock, bird and leaves are stamped separately with distress inks and cut them out to adhere on the background.

Light Bulb Journal Page by Gemma

Hi All

 I love, love ,love the new limited set of PaperArtsy paints, The colours are Captain Peacock, Professor Plum, Granny Smith and Teresa Green. It doesn't hurt that the names are just awesome.

 For this page I used Captain Peacock and Professor Plum. I also some basic Buff Titan acrylic, with the three colours I just covered the pages, there was no method I just did not want to see white any more, once it was dry you could really see the brush marks in the paint, which was great. Using both the Captain Peacock and the Professor Plum I stamped over the top with both the dots and large random dots backgrounds. The paint underneath was still slightly wet, which moved and came up in places revealing the titan buff underneath.

Over this I made the black and white circles using Dylusion Paints and two different sized lids that I keep with the paints just to do this. I stamped out the light bulb on to a scrap bit of paper to use as a mask through which I painted Titan buff and then stamped the dancing girl and the word dance with black archival ink from the dance plate. I also stamped some more dots.

 To finish I stamped the light bulb three time onto acetate, with black ink, cut them out and glued them on top of the painted ones, using a black paint pen I drew around them and also drew lines to the top of the page.

Thanks for reading

Garden - Mixed Media Canvas by Shilpa

Hello Everyone,
Shilpa here,

I would like to share mini Garden canvas with you for which I've used Artistic stamper Katy Leitch designed Encyclopedia Botanica stamp set.

I created background with Prima Modeling paste and stencil. When it dried completely, I spritzed Ranger Distress stains Ground espresso and mermaid lagoon.

Flowers are stamped with Jet black archival ink and coloured with Cracked Pistachio Distress stain.
I did some text stamping in the background for more interest. 

Here is the final look of my mini canvas.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Gibson Girls can Fly!!

Hi Everyone

Hope you are all enjoying this months challenge.  If you haven't entered yet, you still have a few days to go.  Here is my latest piece to hopefully inspire you!

I took a 6X6 card and stamped the Gibson Girl in Archival Potting Soil and re-stamped onto a post-it note to use as a mask, cut out the mask and stuck it to cover the image. Inked up one of the wings from the Dance A5 set and stamped the first one and then moved the same stamp over slightly and stamped again.  Leaving the mask in place I stamped the flourish from the Borders A5 set.  

I then used the Swirl 6x6 Mask and using cut and dry sponge applied Rusty Hinge Distress Ink, I also coloured the Gibson Girl's dress with the same sponge.  I used the Calligraphy Mat 11 again in Archival to add to the background and the Flourish from the Swirls, Splats and Dots Mat.

I finished it all off with a bit of Rusty Hinge around the edge of the card and the Kisses stamp is from Grungy Greetings and was done on a separate piece to add an extra bit of dimension.

Don't forget you still have time to add a project to the challenge.
