Hello everyone,

Today is my turn to show you something made with Lost Coast Designs/Carmens Verandah Stamps. A lot of these stamps are now available via Even if you can't find it in the shop they will be able to order it for you.

If you live in the States it is better to shop at

I decided to make another Art Journal.

I started this page by stamping the monkey face at the bottom and then adding the colour around him using a blending tool and Distress inks. I used Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon. Next I used a stencil and some model paste to create some interest. After the model paste was dry I sprayed some yellow Lindy's Spray over the raised areas, again to add some interest. There is a lovely sparkle to these areas now.  Next I stamped the background randomly with the harlequin stamp and the bottle cap. I used paint to stamp the bottle cap. Next I stamped the 'hello' with a greeny Archival ink and cut out the letters. I then coloured the monkey face with coloured pencils and accentuated the letters here and there also with pencils. 
I also doodled around the letters and around the page. Lastly I adhered the letters to the page.

I used the following stamps:

Thank you so much for stopping by ! 


  1. Love those little eyes peeping over the edge - so sweet with the "hello", and great background colours.
