Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blog where today I am sharing an art journal page for VivaLasVegaStamps!
I have made a tutorial and invite you to get a drink, sit down and have a look...

As always I'll show you the finished product first:

And here's how:

I started off with a piece of white drawing paper. 

I tool out some paints and a brayer to give it some colour. I made sure to leave some white areas. 

I took out my mini round gelli plate to add some more detail. I used purple and white paint in this case. 

Make sure you don't use too much paint. Better too little than too much. 

I used this piece of cardboard to make a pattern on the plate before printing. 

This is how that looks. 

I did this three times. I thought that looked good ! 

Next I got my favourite background stamps out and started stamping with inks in similar colours to the paint I used. I did add a grey for more variation. 

That is the background done ! Love it !!! 

Next I stamped my main image and the sentiment I was going to use on a piece of white card stock. 

I also stamped the top half of him on the page. This way I can cut off the 'hair' from the separate stamped image and when I adhere it over the top the 'hair' is there again. 

I got out some UmWow studio Star Confetti and heat-embossed them with a light purple embossing powder. 

They go all shiny, lovely...

Next it was time to colour my man. I used Copic Markers... my favourite way of colouring as it is quick and easy.. 

And here he is in all his glory ! 

Here is the finished product again. Everything adhered. As a finishing touch I added some black pen around the sentiment. 
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.

I have used the following stamps:

Thank you so much for stopping by today !
