Friday Craft, Stamping and Coloring

These cards use the stamp set from Stampendous called Build a Bouquet. The set comes with a mask for each stamp, which makes it very easy to create a single layer card with a lush bouquet.

In the above card, I used all the floral elements to make a bouquet, with the jar as a vase. I colored in the images using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I am teaching myself how to use them through practice, and I’m liking most of the results.

For this card, I used the same flower stamp over and over, with the round vase. I also colored these with my Spectrum Noir markers.

Another pretty simple way to make beautiful cards.

Friday Craft, Art Journal Canvas

I created this canvas using techniques from my art journal life. First I smooshed paint around, blue, purple, and white. Enough to cover the canvas. Then I added the purple lotus in the bottom left corner using a stencil. Another stencil made the leaves, which I layered with different tones of green to give an illusion of depth. Then I added the little hexagons in the bottom right corner.

A fun and pretty simple project using paint, stencils, and my finger.

Friday Craft, Art Journal 18

Another spread using Dylusions paints. I also use a bunch of stencils, some modeling paste, a stamp with letters and numbers, and a toilet paper roll for circles.

I got a package of Tim Holtz stickers with these phrases on sale, and it’s been a great addition to my art journal arsenal. This one says, “be open to whatever comes next”.
