Be happy. Be bright. BE YOU.

Hello everyone !

For this months Stampingback Challenge I made an art Journal... The idea is to use the word 'ART'.

I started with a piece of Mixed media paper, painted it with gesso and then used a stencil and some modelling paste to create the 'ART' on the background. 
Next, I know it is boring, I used Lindys Stampgang Flat Fabios in my favourite colours 'Merry go round green' and 'Tilt a wheel teal'. I sprayed, dripped and sprayed again until I was happy. Next I used the brick stamp from plate 145A in the background. I also used some Big Brush Pit Pens to add some shading around the letters. Next I used a black pen to doodle around the page. 
The girl, plate 146B,  was stamped on white card stock, coloured and cut out; I also stamped her on the polkadot paper, die cut a circle and adhered the two together. I then adhered the circle to the page. I used the sentiment from the same plate, cut is apart and glued it on the page. I doodled around the strips as well. 
That was it ! 

Thank you for stopping by !

  5. This is absolutely stunning, Corrie. I suppose the color is a big part of the "stunning," but your textural background is also amazing. That said, it certainly does not steal the scene from your gorgeous girl, who is so very, very beautifully colored. Your ability to blend color still amazes me, my friend! Well done. Very well done!
