Mixed Media Art Journal Life on the Ocean Waves

Hello, my friends, welcome back for the new challenge. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our theme is "LIFE ON THE OCEAN WAVES". I was inspired to create a mixed media art journal page using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Pad Salty Ocean on the background, and embellished with Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps Mariner Blueprint and Idea-Ology Photo Booth Vintage Photo.

To start this project, I sprayed Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain on the background of the art journal page. The background was stamped with Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamp Artful Voyage and the black ink pad, then heat embossed using the clear embossing powder.

On a piece of heavy white card stock, I stamped the anchor, rope and ship wheel with Tim Holtz Mariner Blueprint and colored them using watercolors. These images were cut and pasted on the journal page with foam tabs. To finish off this project, I randomly added some sentiments on the page using Tim Holtz Remnant Rubs. 

I hope you like my creation of "Life on the Ocean Waves" this week and got inspired to create your project. Join us and happy crafting!
