LBBS~ Peony Art Journal Page

Hello, crafty friends, today I have a fun Art Journal Page using one of the amazing Mixed Media Images that Olga has in the Little Blue Button Shop! I used the Mix Media Peony digi stamp
Isn't she gorgeous??? 
Be sure to check out the other amazing Mixed Media Images in the shop here
I started with a Bo Bunny Chipboard Mini Album page and applied Distress Paints in Spun Sugar, Barn Door and Antique Linen. I stamped some text in the background and applied texture paste thru a Memory Box Stencil.  I used a Penny Black Stamp to ground my image. 

I printed off 4 copies of the digital Image and colored the flower, bird and flower in her hair several times with Spectrum Noir Markes. I then layered the pieces to give it more dimension and adhered the pieces with foam dots/tape. A little glossy accents, Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen and Heart Bling finish off the page.

I find adding a little dimension with layers to a Digital Image can enhance your projects to suit your needs. 

I sure hope I've inspired you today. 

Happy craftin'!

STAMPlorations~ Stencil Sunday #97

Happy Sunday everyone! I'm sharing a tag I made for STAMPlorations Sunday Stencil #97. The designers have created some fabulous mixed media projects to inspire you. You can find them  here so be sure to check them out and leave them some luv! :o) 

Today I used ARTplorations Overlap and Super Bubbles Stencils along with a sentiment from Trendy Birds 2 STAMPlorations Stamp Set. 
 A pretty quick and easy background using a watercolor paper tag and some Jane Davenport Watercolors- Brights. I then applied black acrylic paint thru the Overlap and Super Bubbles Stencils and used a White Paint Pen for some doodling. A little splatter using watered down white acrlic paint finished off the background. I applied a circle diecut on the top from my Design Paper stash and inked the edges in Black Soot Distress Paint.  I colored a Tim Holtz Grungeboard bird with the Black Soot Distress Paint and embossed the sentiment from the
Trendy Birds 2 stamp set and adhered it to the tag with Tacky Glue. And voila a fun and bright tag :o)

I hope you were inspired to play along in our Monthly Challenge, there is still some time to join in.
