Art Journal Wonderful Life

newchallenge sssm

Hi there my lovely friends, I am so happy that you come back for another challenge. At Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week, we challenge you to use acetate, vellum,  or anything you can think of that is a little transparent. Or you can use your imagination and think of a different meaning!

I created an art journal page with a beautiful spring scene for this challenge.

Spring is officially here! It's time to go out and play! On my art journal page, I colored the background with various shades of Distress Paints, and created patterns ColorBox Inkpads and Tim Holtz Stamps.

The bicycle image was stamped on the transparency film with Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp. I used these transparency films a lot for the covers of my handmade journals. They are perfect to protect the journals. Usually on this kind of non-porous surfaces, I stamp with ColorBox Surfacez Inks.

Some Prima Prima Flowers embellishment and sentiment stickers were added to decorate the page.

I hope you like this page and create your project with some transparent material or anything you can see clearly - interpret it in your way. Can't wait to see what you will come up with.
