Mixed Media Art Journal Compass

Hi, my lovely crafty friends, I hope you all had enjoyed your weekend. The weather is getting warm. Our family really enjoys the great weather, and spends more time in the garden and outdoor sports. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we challenge you to create something inspired by "DUE DATES" - libraries, date stamps, craft assignments, a new baby or school assignment, I can't wait to see your interpretation.

I was inspired to use a date stamp on my art journal page.

I love using date stamp to document life. On this art journal page, after coloring the background with Distress Spray Stain and water mixture, I stamped the date with American Crafts Dear Lilly Date Stamp.

There are more dates and numbers were added using Tim Holtz Idea-ology Numbers Remnant Rubs.

The compass was stamped, die cut and assembled with three layers to make the dimension using Sizzix Framelits Compass Blueprint Die And Stamp Set.

The rope was stamped using 2015 new Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp. The letters on the background were stenciled with Tim Holtz Layering Stencil and Modeling Paste. I colored the letters using Distress Stain Ink Metallic.

I hope you like this art journal and get a chance to create your next project with these awesome products. 

Supply List: 

Join us and create a project inspired by "DUE DATES". Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $50 gift card. You might also be on our Friday Designer Spotlight. Have fun!

I really appreciate that you stop by and leave your comment love. Happy crafting!
