newchallenge sssm

Hello, my lovely blog friends, welcome back! This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, with Valentine’s Day in a few days we are getting all romantic and creating for someone we love. As red is the color of love we would like tho see a hint of that in your creation too! I am looking forward to seeing your creation for your Valentine.

I created an art journal page with my favorite mixed media elements.

It's always fun to experiment different medias and elements in the art journal. I sprayed the background of this page with Tim Holtz Distress Spray and ColorBox Screen Rounded Stencil.

The background also was stenciled with Gesso and Tim Holtz Layering stencil. I added a beautiful butterfly for decoration.

I really adore this sentiment so I stamped and embossed it with ColorBox black ink and ColorBox Clear Embossing Powder.

The die cut letters were colored with Tim Holtz Distress Paint and layered on top of the Tim Holtz Textured Surfaces and cheese cloth.

Art Journal Hi My Friend

newchallenge sssm

Hello, my dear crafty friends, I hope you all had an awesome weekend! At Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week, we would like to challenge you to create something themed "BEST FRIENDS". There are so many ways to interpret this theme. I am looking forward to seeing your creation!

I was inspired to create a mixed media art journal page this week.

I made a friendship themed art journal page with some mixed media elements. The background of the page was colored with Distress Paints, and stenciled with Distress Spray and Tim Holtz Layering Stencil.

The sentiments were stamped with Simon Says Stamp Oh Happy Day and Clearsnap black ink pad. The stamped image and sentiment were heat embossed with ColorBox Clear Embossing Powder. I distressed the image and Small Talk sentiment with Colorbox black ink and Art Dauber.


I also randomly added some Tim Holtz Rubs on the background of the page, and pasted index labels.


The "my friend" sentiment was stamped on another piece of watercolored watercolor paper, cut out
and pasted on the page using Tombow Adhesive Tabs to create the dimension.

The texture on the background of the tag was created with Modeling Paste. The text was stenciled using Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Valentine, ColorBox pigment inkpads and Art Dauber.

I also adhered the Prima Flowers hearts resin and Tim Holtz metal embellishments for more interest. The butterfly was cut out from the patterned paper.
