I was inspired to use two of my favorite stamps in Tim Holtz STAMPtember Exclusive Cling Stamps for my art journal pages. I just can't stop playing with these beautiful stamps after I created with two of the stamps in my previous projects. 

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Art Journal Coffee Tim Holtz Simon Says Stamp


On my first journal page, I colored the background with Distress Paints, and stamped the image using the coffee stamp from the set and Memento Black Ink. I added a layer of stamped coffee image to create the dimension.

The flag image was stamped using Simon Says Stamp Oh Happy Day and embossed with ColorBox Clear Embossing Powder.

I decorated the page with some Tim Holtz metal embellishments and Rubs. 

For the second journal page, I sprayed the background with Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain over the Layering Stencil and applied Distress Paints on the background.

I distressed the edges of the page with Distress Paints. I also added some Remnant Rubs and Tim Holtz metal embellishments to decorate the page.

I really love the beautiful sea shell image and the great details on this Exclusive Stamp Set. The size and the sentiment are just perfect for my 4" X 6" mini art journal.

The metal embellishment on the bottom of the page was colored with Distress Paint. I attached all the embellishments with Tombow Mono Glue, and used Foam Squares to make the dimension of the sea shell image.

I love how you blend colors and your mastery over embellishments is quite amazing. On the coffee piece, I adore how you included the "lucky" charm, which goes so perfectly with the sentiment. And on the seashell piece, I really like the words you chose. Another amazing creation from a truly amazing artist!
