Imagination Art Journal

Hello, my friends, welcome back. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we challenge you to wander up in the air for your inspiration. Whether you are inspired to create a light and fluffy piece, use sky blue, create an art journal or quote about clouds, or any other interpretation of our challenge we invite you to go soaring among the clouds with us this week.

I was inspired by the rainy day and created an art journal page this week with some die cut clouds.

I love rainy day. The watercolored background was inspired by the rainy day through the window. I sprayed the Distress Spray Stain over the Clearsnap Art Screen and Tim Holtz Layering Stencil to create the watercolor effect.


I punched out the clouds using Fiskars Cloud Large Easy Squeeze Punch, and stenciled the raindrops using Prima Flowers RainDrops Stencil.


The butterfly embellishment was cut out from Tim Holtz patterned paper and attached a Prima Flowers metal embellishment. 


To add some more interest, I stamped Tim Holtz cling rubber stamp and added some sentiment using Tim Holtz Remnant rubs. 


I hope you like my journal page and got inspired to create something with clouds.

Winter Art Journal

We finally have some sunshine these two days after the freezing cold weather for more than two weeks. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we have a "Winter Stamping" challenge - Winter isn’t just coming – it’s fully here! With the holidays behind us and spring seeming so far away, let’s focus on the season at hand. Will you stamp a snowy scene? Try a new use for a snowflake stamp? Perhaps be inspired by the colors of winter in your ink choices… however you decide to get stamping, we hope you’ll join in the challenge and share".

I was inspired to create a winter scene with a snowman on  my art journal page.



I'd love to have a snow scene on my art journal page since there was no snow this winter in Dallas even the temperature has been really low, and I really missed stepping on the snow.


First, I watercolored the background with Distress Spray Stain mixed with water. Then I stamped the snow flakes using Tim Holtz cling rubber stamp and Gesso.


The sentiments were added using Tim Holtz Rub on stickers.




I stamped the snowman using Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamp Halftone Christmas and and Memento black ink. Then I created the snow using Modeling Paste.


The "hello friend" sentiment was stamped using Tim Holtz cling rubber stamp and Memento black ink and distressed using Distress ink and Clearsnap Art Dauber.


I hope you like my journal page and got inspired to create something with winter stamping.
