For my first DT post for March for VivaLasVegaStamps! I have made an art journal. I have been watching VLVS! own DeeDee Catron doing art journaling on YouTube and I saw her using a shape that I really liked so I borrowed it from her. I am sure she won't mind. It is a circle with a hole in it and to me it looks really retro...
I started with die cutting the circles and the holes in the circles. These circles were then adhered to my journal page. Next I gessoed it all with white gesso.
I used a few shades of yellow acrylic paint (PaperArtsy Fresco paints) and my fingers to add the colour to this page. The dark shades around the circles were made with a brown Big Brush Marker.
next I used a bottle cap with yellow ink and a credit card and some watered down black paint to add some mark making. I also stamped the background a little with Saffron, Sepia and Black Archival inks. There is a list of all the stamps I used at the bottom of this post.
The lady was stamped on white card stock, coloured with Copic Markers, cut out and adhered on the page. I used a coloured pencil to add some shading under her. This is so she is anchored down and not floating in space. The sentiment was also stamped on white card, coloured with copics and the edges were darkened with the Sepia Archival ink. I adhered this to the page as well and that finished it off.
I used the following stamps:
Thank you so much for stopping by today ! I hope I gave you some inspiration to get your stamps out and play !
