I made a set of tags for Artistic Outpost. Loving these images. I made them the focal point of my tags. Here are a few close-ups.
Thanks for looking.
Good Morning! I have another page to share in my new ‘Expeditions’ art journal. I bought a collage sheet of siblings several years ago and I think I might finally be able to put it to use. I love this image. My background is book paper over a brown paper bag. Lots of gesso, paints and stamping along with layers of ephemera finish off the page. I was able to use up a lot of scraps! Wo-hoo!
I have started another art journal!! It is entitled Expeditions. So far my pages are mainlyof vintage children. I am imagining all the adventures that children have been through, both alone and with siblings.I showed the completed Cover that I made for last months I Am Roses challenge. The format is a flip book. Unusual sized pages appeal to me for some reason.
I had lots of fun playing around with my background. I used some forgotten pieces of ephemera, neglected stamps and a photo I had already printed. I am still working on using up my stash.
Hope you can find time to craft today.
I made this mail art using some of my favorite envelopes. They better be a favorite because I bought them in bulk. I used my Artistic Outpost stamps from the Flapper Fashion plate.
The beautiful flowers are from I Am Roses. I used a few sunflowers, white gardenia petals and mini roses.
I added lots of paint, gesso and layers of paper to add more interest. And of course, I love dripped paint.
Here is my completed cover! This is my first art journal and I know it won’t be my last. I have already started pages in my next journal. I am just trying to come up with a name for it.
Here is the last layout in my a Past Vibes Art Journal. I loved working in it.
I’ll be back soon to share the journals completed cover.
Have a great Friday!
I used my Paper Boy and Chalkboard Wisdom stamp plates from Artistic Outpost to make this card. I made the tag some time ago but never used it on a project so I decided this was the time to put it to use. I stamped the sentiment as well as the stars and just layered them on top of each other. The background was made using a measuring tape embossing folder.
More layouts in my Vintage Vibes Art Journal. I used some of my new Lynne Perrella stamps from PaperArtsy. Well, they were new months ago but I finally got around to playing.
My background was made using a Tim Holtz technique. I went over it in places with gesso and a brick stamp. Flowers are from I Am Roses. I used lots of bright colors in a mix of paint and sprays.
Can’t believe that the week is almost over. Enjoy!
Happy Saturday! I have a project for I Am Roses to share. I had a lot of fun with all the new flowers in my package. This photo is of my youngest and his favorite stuffed bunny, Henley. They go everywhere together and have seen a lot of interesting times.
I added flowers to the side of the canvas to add some extra depth. Here is another view.
And here is another front view.
I appreciate your visit. Hope you have time to craft this weekend!
Welcome to another Artistic Outpost blog hop. It is another Designer’s Choice theme so I chose to make a postcard style card. I used the Generation Redux and Paper Boy stamp plates.
I started off by embossing my background. I inked the edges in tattered rose distress ink. I watered down some of the tattered rose distress paint and applied it with a brush to give more depth around my stamped image. Next I added a background stamp.
I made a banner out of scrap paper and added a little gesso, dripped paint and stamping. My flowers are from I Am Roses and I added a bit of lacey trim and a few die cut flowers.
Thank you for stopping and be sure to hop along to the rest of the design team to get inspired by their amazing projects.
