For today's AALL & Create Guest Design Team post I have made a 6 x 6 journal page. I have used two of the new stamp sets for this. Isn't the new release fabulous ?
How cute is he? lol
Here's how I made it :
I painted my piece of paper with a light lime/yellow colour and when it was dry I went over it with a turquoise. I used a brayer for this. Next I placed the stencil on the top and wiped away the top layer of paint through it. I love this effect.
Next I toned it down with white paint, again using a brayer.
I then used this new stamp set by Aida Domisiewicz and randomly stamped the background and I used one of the stamps to stamp on the blank edge of book paper.. I am going to use these as clouds.
Next I stamped my little monster and decided where I wanted him and the clouds. I also added some more stamping in the background. I also stamped one of the sentiments but in the end I didn't' use this one. I also added a black line around the paper.
Next I coloured the monster and the sentiment using my Copic markers.
here he is, I then cut him out.
In the end I decided to go for the XO XO XO sentiment and stamped the Roaaar! in orange ink along the edges for a pop of colour. I also decided the monster didn't stand out enough so I die cut a circle out of vellum and placed it on a roughly torn circle of book text. I added some washi tape and placed the monster on top. Much better... Lastly I coloured a new sentiment, matted it on black card stock and adhered it.
I have used :
Stamp set #211 - Count on you by Aida Domisiewicz
Stamp set #216 - Monsterous by Olga Heldwein
Stencil #29 by Autour de Maw
