Mixed Media Art Journal Cityscape Hope

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Art Journal Cityscape Hope Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz 1
Hi, my talented blog friends, welcome back for the new challenge! This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we challenge you to create with the theme "CITYSCAPE". What does your city look like? Does it have lots of high rise buildings and lots of traffic? There are so many products that you can use to build your cityscape and I can't wait to see what you create.

I was inspired to create a mixed media art journal page with The Crafters' Workshop Small City Buildings Template and decorated it with Tim Holtz Idea-ology Story Sticks.

I started this project with sprayed some different shades of Tim Holtz Distress Spray on this watercolor journal page. I applied various colors of Ranger Dylusions Paints over Crafter's Workshop Small Building Template using the Blending Brush.

I colored the buildings with watercolors and then stamped some text prints with Simon Says Stamp Ink Pads and Prima Marketing Clear Stamp. 

The metal embellishments were attached on the journal page using Zots Clear Adhesive Dots. I stamped the sentiments with Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp and Simon Says black ink pad. I really enjoyed creating this cityscape themed journal page with these fun and bright colors, and I hope you got inspired by my project. Join us this week and happy crafting!
