I have an art journal to share today. It is made with the lovely Lost Coast Designs/Carmen's Veranda Stamps. A lot of these stamps are available in the Netherlands at Inkadinkadutchies. You'll find the online store HERE.
Here's my journal :
This is done on a piece of watercolour paper. I started with stamping the 'Grunge Black Swirl' background stamp twice with grey Archival ink. I then rubbed yellow, orange and red Brusho's into the paper and stamped with two shapes of the 'Shadow Frames Set' and water into the Brusho's. I didn't think it was bright enough though, so I spritzed some water over it and after it dried I used the same stamps and Distress Inks to accentuate the circles... I liked that better. I then used white acrylic paint and the 'Love' stamp from the 'Dream, Magic, Love' set. Next I stamped the 'Cat & Bird' on the page and on white paper. I coloured them with pencils and cut them out. Before I adhered them I did some collaging with music paper and an old comic which was coloured with the same Distress ink colours. I also doodled and splattered with a white paint pen.
Lastly I adhered 'Cat & Bird' and used some chit chat stickers by Tim Holtz for the sentiment.
Thank you so much for stopping by today !
