Hi, my lovely friends! Thank you so much for coming back! Hope you all had fun with the Leap into the unknown challenge last week. This week, at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we challenge you to MAKE YOUR OWN BACKGROUND. We are showcasing Darkroom Door Products this week, you don’t have to use them to join in, but if you have them we would love to see them used on your projects!

I created the background of my art journal page with watercolors and acrylic paints.

It's always fun to me to create colorful background for my mixed media project. This week, I made this background with Sakura Koi watercolors and Distress Paints. The tube images were stamped on the watercolor paper with Darkroom Door stamp,  and colored with watercolors and Aquash brushes.

Some sentiments are from Tim Holtz Remnant Rubs. The metal sentiment was Tim Holtz Word Band that covered with Colorbox ink pad and embossed with ColorBox Clear Embossing Powder.

Some Tim Holtz Big Chat Stickers were added, and some metal embellishments were adhered with Tombow Glue as the final touch.
