#Thestencilfiedjournal - Prompt 3

Image may contain: text

We are in our third week, #thestencilfiedjournal prompt 3.  I had fun with this one!

I found a leaf outside and flattened it in a book for a couple of days then but a thin coat of clear gesso on both side to seal it.

Here is what I ended up with.

StencilGirl Stencils used:  Fade Horizontal, Layers of Scallops, Scribble Blooms.
I stenciled with Posca Paint pens, Dina Wakley paint (lemon) and Distress Ink (Vintage Photo)

The leaf is outlined with a Graphite Sticks from Prima that I smeared all around with my finger first then a waterpen and then a baby wipe.

If you are inspired and work on these prompt please shared on Facebook or Instagram using these hashtags: #thestencilfiedjournal and #stencilgirl
We will be watching for you pages!!

#TheStencilfiedJournal - Prompt 2

Image may contain: text

Thanks for coming back for prompt TWO in our art hournal collaboration.
So if you remember from last week there was only one rule!  We just had to use Stencil Girl stencils on all of our pages.

Let's jump right in!

YES, stencil a page and RIP it out... I was slightly intimidated by that part but it is just paper right??!!

I stenciled with S301 Makes Marks Marks (Mary Beth Shaw) and S290 Deconstructed Zinnia Stencil and Mask (Traci Bautista)   

Some painting wit Dina Wakley Medis paints; Marine, Cheddar, Olive and Lemon.  Doodling with Posca Paint Pens.

Now the hard part, mentally not physcially!!

I ripped that page right out!!!

Then tied it to a tree in my front yard!  I used a scrap of Sari ribbon.

I hope you will stop back next week for Prompt THREE!!

My friend and StencilGirl Products Columnist, Tina Walker, is up to her old tricks again and has created a fabulous collaboration where we will be art journaling based on 16 weekly prompts.  I am so happy to be participating and expanding my creative reach.
So, if you know Tina, there typically are not a lot of rules and in this case there is only 1!!  We just had to use Stencil Girl stencils on all of our pages.

Promt ONE
Image may contain: text

The journal I am using is 3-1/2 x 5-1/2.

After some typical mixed media journal prep I started smack dab in the middle of my journal.

No automatic alt text available.

I glued two pages together and slathered clear gesso on every surface!

My second layer was gold gesso, YES GOLD!!!
Then I stenciled with S301 Makes Marks Marks (Mary Beth Shaw).  Then I used the mask part of L414 Finding Your Tribe (Carolyn Dube).

All paint is Dina Wakley Media; Peacock, Sedona, Black, Blushing, Sky, Lemon and Eggplant.  I doodled with my new Posca Paint pens.

Head on over to A Dogs Life for all the juicy details and keep you eyes peeled weekly for more journaling fun with all of our prompts!!!

Spots and Dots


The Stampotique Designers Challenge is 'Spots and Dots' (SDC 290) and we are in week is a little inspiration and a quick how to for the tag I created.

I created this tag with a 'Spots and Dots' background.  I have a quick tutorial on how I created the background but first...The Stampotique stamps used: Queen of Heart and Quotes 2

On a black tag I used matte gel and some punchinella for a little texture.

Once the gel was dry I rubbed on some Metallique wax.

Another quick layer with an UmWow Studio stencila nd white gesso.  You will notice on the tag I used both the positive and the negative.

Now a brief look at what I did with the Queen of Hearts stamp...

 I stamped the image twice on some specialty paper for coloring.  I used one that works well for colored pencils and Gamsol.

I colored all of one of the images and just the head of the other becasue that is the part I would be layering.

I popped up the Queen's head all the while laughing to myself since she is the one who is always shouting, 'off with her head!'

I also used some spotted washi tape and added a white layer behind the black tage that is sewn on,

How fun is that bobble head??!!!

Thanks for joining me and I hope you are inspired to enter of 'Spots and Dots' challenge!!

November Release at Stampotique

Hi all!!!  It have been a little while since I have blogged but we have some new stamps for November at Stampotique and I have some fun cards to share!

First, look at this little cutie!

This is Nina's Heart (5856) by Magda Polakow and Terri's Alphabet (13028) from the new collection and Daniels' Hearts (6109)

Next a little underwater fun.

The fun Treasure Cube (7423) by Arwen McCullen from the new release works perfectly with her Treasure Chest (7429).  We also have Smushasha (6121) by Daniel Torrente.

Another one with the treasure chest.

Moses (6233) by Daniel Torrente is new.  I also used the Dog Cube (6192) by Daniel Torrente and Arwen's Alpha Background (7431).

I also used the Dog Cube on the next two cards.

Sara (6234) is from the November release.  I love using Arwen's Alpha Background to create my sentiments.

Aren't Sara (6234) and Moses (6233) a perfect couple?  I used the Barcode Text #2 (10025) for the sentiment.

Aren't these stamps from the November release AWESOME??!!  Perfect additions to your Stampotique collection!

Until next ime...get inky!

SDC 278 Use Some Kind of Tape

It's week 2 of our Designers Challenge over at Stampotique and we are challenging you to use some kind of tape.

I made a tag with one of Daniel Torrente's new designs, Floating (6224).

I also used the Hashtag Stamps by Arwen McCullen (7435).  Distress Ink for the background and I used some punchinella for the little stars.  Washi Tape is the tape I selected to use as a little platform for this floating cutie!

There is still time to link up to the challenge on the blog or share on our facebook page, Stampotique Originals Rubberstamps.
