My journal is very much a place to PLaY, and I've really been enjoying playing with my Artistic Stamper stamps as guest designer this month, so it was only fitting to share a journal page with you as my last piece.
As soon as I saw the new Inspiration Light Bulbs I knew I wanted to add wings to them, and today the 'Winged Globus Illuminatus' was born :) The moth wings from Insects and Butterflie 1 are the perfect size for the light bulbs :)
I also loved the idea of using the blank light bulb as a bird cage. This came about because as I was working on my light bulbs, I had my free as a bird set of stamps near by! I used the loop from the top of the cage to form a loop for my light bulbs, and stamped the birds after stamping the blank light bulb.
I painted the background using emulsion paint, masking some areas with Tim Holtz' cogs mask, and adding stamped elements with my Rusty Hinge distress ink pad and the wonderful cogs background alongside elements from Tick Tock.
Overstamping the blank light bulb with the cogs background and lace background gave me two more patterned lightbulbs for my imaginary creatures.
I think there's more to play with with this story of winged light bulbs fluttering through the air, and strange creatures using their discarded shells to keep tiny birds in. And that's the fun of journaling, coming up with stories as you play.
Thankyou Jennie and Hels for inviting me to play this month, now I'm off to order some of those new stamps just released :)
