  Hi everyone, 

For today's VivaLasVegaStamps! post I have made and art journal spread in my small journal. 

Here's how I made this:

I started with stamping the focal image with Archival ink and colouring it with watercolour markers. 

I used Amsterdam Acrylics and a small gelli plate to add colour to my pages. I just roll the paint on the plate and then press it onto the pages. I used a bright yellow, a green and an orange. 

I then took a brayer and some white acrylic paint and toned it down again. I thought the orange was to much. 

I then added random stamping and some black paint around some of the edges. I used a paletknife to scrape the paint along the edge. 

Next, I used a star stencil and white paint to add more interest and I stamped part of the main image onto the left page. I concentrated on the small text at the top and the bottom because I can't cute this out. 

Next, I added a little more stamping, some black lines, I glued down the main image and added a sentiment. I also used part of another stamp; the word alien to add over the alien's body.

I used the following stamps:

Rest of the materials:
Amsterdam Acrylics
Gelli Arts Gelli Plate 
Archival inks
Star stencil
Ecoline Brush Markers

Thank you for stopping by today.

  1. What a great spread, Corrie...I'm a fan of all things alien, and this just gets me in the 'outer space' zone. ;-)
