Today I fancied doing an Art journal and enter that into the Stampotique Designers Challenge # 128 which has the theme: Anything goes. It is a month long challenge this time and I thought I go with the Christmas theme. At the end of it you can win yourself $30,-- worth of Stampotique stamps so why not hop over and have a look.
I made this :
I already painted this page last week. I had some tissue paper, stamped lots of letters on it and glued it onto this page. I then painted gesso over it and blue paint. You can still see the letters peek through here and there. I did some background stamping and used Stampotique's
The white stars were drawn by hand and coloured with a white paint pen, not sure I like them.
The Christmas tree was hand drawn on pattern paper and cut out and shaded a bit. For the little critters on the page I used
I stamped them all on white card and coloured them with watercolour pencils and a water brush. Also I clear embossed them. Hunk insisted on wearing his reindeer jumper for this occasion. The hats were drawn by me and coloured and embossed the same way. I then thought that Grandpa Hunk's painting needed to go up. I stamped Hunk again and gave him hair and a moustache.
It's a shame that you cannot see all these little detail on a photo.
The sentiment was stamped on book text and I also used some of this to ground everything on. Also used a bit of red and white polkadot washitape.
Thanks for stopping by !
Hope you like it…..
