May's Creative Challenge - Journaling

Hello, and welcome to May's challenge, with a brand NEW prize!
Six weeks into lockdown, and we are noticing lots of creative and crafty creations filling our online world. We hope this will inspire you to join us , and show us your creations.
This month and for the next two months, we are giving YOU an opportunity to join our Creative Team for a month, and get to use The Artistic Stamper stamps, and be posted on this blog, and on social media. Come and create and be in it to win it!

This month the theme is Journaling and can be interpreted any way you like, as long as it has rubber stamps on it.

To join in with this challenge (we are limiting the challenge entries to 3 per person), is simple; all we would like you to do is, make a piece of artwork, making sure that you include the theme and some rubber stamping. Pop back here to link up using the Inklinkz at the bottom of this post, so that we can see what you've made and then, leave us a comment to let us know you have joined in with the challenge.

We will pick a winner early next month from the entries, so get your thinking caps on, bring out your inks and stamps, and join in!

In addition, you can enter the same challenge on Facebook just for fun.
To join us on just go to our new Facebook group, and send us a request to join.
For inspiration, here are the team's creations.


I have made this little journal to put all my memories and thoughts of the past six weeks of lockdown, and the coming months until we get back to some kind of normality. 

I have used:


I have made this journal page to thank
the people who work outside risking their lives while we are locked-down. I have made the background with gel plate printings of the Artifacts - Thank you Text stamp, then I used The Splats & Swirl Mask. I finished the background using the Thank you stamp from Grungy Greetings #2 A6 that I enhanced with a white pen.
Then I drew the woman with the mask and wrote Thank You on it.

I will be happy to read your comments about it !
Bye for now and happy creating.

Hi everyone! Angie here with a page from my art journal for you.

For this page I created a masterboard using Amsterdam paints. I added some stencilling and stamping, then used the large flower stencil and black Sharpie pen to draw the flower. After that I painted the rest of the page with black acrylic paint.
I used the Artistic Stamper Tracy Scott Background 8 stamp, white embossing powder and a versamark ink pad on black card and cut out some of the circles, which you can see dotted around the page.
I also used a quote from the Quotes & Sayings 1 by Debs Smith stamp set for the quote at the bottom of the pages (this time with gold embossing powder).
Lastly I spent a happy few hours doodling on the page with a white Posca pen and then added some white splatter for good measure!
 Stay safe and keep crafting!
