Hello friends, I hope you are having a lovely Tuesday!
The Play Date Cafe has once again given us a lovely set if colors to challenge us with this week.
I decided to do some Art Journaling. Still trying to loosen up a bit more so I have not shown you guys some of my prior journaling...so here goes:
I used a combination of sprays....Dylusions in Crushed Grape, Glimmer Mist in Night B4 Christmas, and Glimmer Glam paint in Royal Velvet, the paint is both painted on and splattered lightly. I sprayed water onto mt page first, sprayed the colors and then laid down the adjacent page to blend...now I have another Purple page for a different work. I used a Tim Holtz stamp for the crackle look in the background and a Kaiser Craft stamp for the bubble wrap background. I stamped those with Archival Ink in Plum and Deep Purple. I then stamped the dress form from THoltz in black Archival as well as the "always" stamp, I don't remember who makes that one.
Using the following photo as inspiration;
I chose to create a heart using stamped images of spool tops. These came from Maya Road and Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous. I used Archival inks again in Plum, Deep Purple, Blue Violet and Magenta Hue. I love using the Archival inks with clear stamps as they seem to give the clearest stamped images.
Finally I did some embellishing with Momenta Metal Stickers and some pen work. I replicated stitching as a boarder, around the heart too, right next to the heart I used a TH SA stamp which replicates a zig zag stitch. I wanted some "pop" so I used a Marvy Deco Color Liquid Gold paint pen.
I'm loving the art journaling, I highly recommend everyone give it a try, you probably have most of the supplies laying around your craft space for a fun page!
I will be entering this into the following challenges, besides TPDC :
