Great Things take Time Art Journal Page

Hi there,

it's time for our Stencil Sunday over on the STAMPlorations Blog. If you are interested in the products I used or other STAMPlorations, ARTplorations or CUTplorations products, I have a special treat for you: use the discount code STAMPGIRLTANJA and get 20% off on all stamps, stencils, and dies.

  • cover an art journal page cut from extra sturdy watercolor paper with white gesso
  • apply Prima Marketing Modeling Paste through the ARTplorations Just Flow stencil and let it dry thoroughly
  • color the background with Paper Artsy Infusions Raspberry
  • add some torn tissue tape at two random spots
  • use heavy gesso to blend the tissue tape a bit more into the background
  • glue the photo of the clownfish onto some old book paper
  • splatter the whole page with watered-down black acrylic paint
  • add the sentiment from the Tim Holtz Small Talk sticker set

I hope you got inspired and don't forget to join us for our Mixed Media Challenge over at the STAMPlorations Blog. The theme is always anything mixed media except a card. You must use at least one stencil (any brand) in your project. The Linky closes at the end of the month.

Yours,

Winter Bear

Hi there,

this is my second individual post on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog and I created this beary winter card for you:


  • stamp one of the bears and some trees from the adorable Elizabeth Craft Designs Winter Bears set with Memento Tuxedo Black
  • color the images with Copic, Touch Twin Brush and Delta Markers 
  • add sparkle to the tree tops with Wink of Stella Clear Glitter
  • add patterns and highlights with a white gel pen
  • cut out three squares from watercolor paper using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Dashing Squares set
  • add a night sky to one of the squares using Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire and a Mini Ink Blending Tool
  • add texture with some water droplets
  • cut hill shapes from the two other squares and add Distress Ink Tumbled Glass and Elizabeth Craft Designs Silk Microfine Glitter Cool Diamond for a snowy look
  • draw in some snowflakes with a white paint marker
  • cut out a larger square using the same die set from patterned paper from the ModaScrap Let it snow 6x6 paper pad
  • add all the layers to a light grey cardbase
  • create a sentiment using a Dymo Label Maker

I hope you got inspired.

Yours,
