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.

This week’s art journal page is pretty simple. A long time ago I had covered these pages with pattern pieces (bust that stash!) and then I covered the pages with acrylic paint, the limited palette I’m using for Art Journal Summer School.

Then I made circles with white paint, and once they were dry took gelatos to make very simple flowers.artjournal_flowergarden_gelatos-2

Friday Craft, Art Journal 14

I gifted my art partner and myself with Art Journal Summer School through Bloknote Academy. A 10 week course, 2 lessons per week. Intended to be portable and taken with you during summer travels, the supply list is long but can be simplified.

This is the second lesson from week one, simple doodled blooms with watercolor. Another loosening up exercise. The lesson leader uses fluid acrylics, which I don’t have and will not purchase so I used my watercolors. I have very very inexpensive student grade watercolors, so my final product isn’t as nice as I would like, but it was a fun process to get here and I learned a bunch.

I love collecting art supplies so I am on a self-imposed hold, no more art supplies until I finish much of what I already have. Bust that stash!
