It's the 1st of September today and that means it is my turn on Roc's blog. I have made a mini art journal and I have used one of Roc's brand-new stamps for this.
I started out with white gesso. Next I took some Distress inks and coloured the page; two shades of blue for the sky and green and yellow for the grassy hill.
The moon is a die cut circle which I coloured with Copics and glued in the centre of the light blue spot. I stamped Roc's brand-new 'Polka Dot Dog' and coloured him with Copics, thinking carefully about where the light and the shading should be.... not as easy as it looks !
After colouring I cut him out and placed him on the hill. I then used a Big Brush Marker to draw in his shadow.
I decided it needed a bit more and stamped the 'Heart Vine' directly on the page. I took away the green and blue inks in the hearts with a water brush and re-coloured them with a pink pencil. The vines themselves were coloured with a Big Brush marker.
Lastly I typed the sentiment (which I made up), cut it apart and glued it on the page. I used a black marker to doodle around the strips.
I used the following stamps :
