STAMPlorations~ Sunday Stencil #84

Happy Sunday everyone! I'm sharing a journal page I made for STAMPlorations Sunday Stencil #84. 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)

I played with  ARTplorations Just Squares and STAMPlorations Groovy Lace Up Shoes. Here's my art journal page
I started by applying Brushos in Lemon,Gaboge and Vermillion with Soft Matte Gel  Medium. Once Dry, I stamped some flowers from the Groovy Shoes Set and Circles from the Artsy Border Maker Set in Blazing Red, Ultramarine and Sunflower yellow StazOn Inks.   I then applied black acrylic paint thru the Just Squares Stencil for my "Road". I created my border with the Artsy Border Maker Set with Jet Black Archival Ink and colored the centers with White Molotow Pen

I then stamped and embossed one of the Groovy Lace Up Shoes twice  so that they would be facing the same way ;o) onto water colored paper. Once it was heat set, I used SN Sparkle Pens to watercolor them in Aquamarine and Rose Quartz. These pens are great for watercoloring as they blend well with a water pen and add some pretty sparkle. :o) For the soles, I used SN Markers (Black, GG5 & IG7) and then used the Clear SN Sparkle Pens so they sparkled too. I fussy cut them out and set aside. Now I needed me some legs to do the walking...I couldn't find anything so I drew the legs and the skirt onto scrap cardstock and fussy cut them out. I adhered it all with the soft Matte gel medium and added some Gelatos for coloring and shading. I finished with by stamping my sentiment and adding some white highlights with my Molotow pen
There you have it...I know you probably have the Nancy Sinatra tune in your head...I know I did. ;o)

I hope you were inspired to play along in our Monthly Challenge, there is still plenty of time join in. Have a great weekend. :o)

TAGplorations~January Challenge

Woohoo! It's time for another TAGplorations Challenge!

This month's theme is WINTER and the optional twist is: TEXTURE PASTE
Here's my tag 

I started with the largest Manila Tags Die cut from MDF board and applied some pieces of cardboard. I then applied a layer of Gesso. Once dry, I applied Prima Platinum Crackle Texture Paste in random areas and let it air dry so I could get the crackle effect. 
I then used Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays in browns and blues to add some color to my background. Then I added the Snowman I  created using different sized circles cut from scrap papers in my stash. I used Vintage Photo Distress Crayon on the edges for some highlights and dimension. I created his arms from the TH Bird Branch Die and tied the Sentiment (TH Christmas Word Bands) with twine. 

I finished with the Uppercase Alpha in the bottom as that's my wish...for Peace. 
And some Paper Smooches Stars Die cuts finished off my tag.

I sure hope you join us for this fun challenge and I…

STAMPlorations~ Sanna's Stencil Release Hop!

Woohoo! STAMPlorations is having a Hop showcasing the lovely Sanna Lippert's Stencil Designs!
Be sure to  check out all her amazing me, you'll LOVE THEM!! 
I used Trees 1 and Flowers 2 and made an art journal page:

I used my Mini Art Journal ..which was a kiddies MDF book. I applied DecoArt NEON acrylic paints  with a brayer. Once dry, I applied a little white gesso with the brayer to soften the background. I then created a Circle mask from acetate and used the same bright acrylic paints thru the FLOWERS 2 stencil . This mask allowed for me to create the "flower bubbles" on my page. 
I then used black acrylic paint thru the TREES 1 Stencil as I felt my page needed some black. I then used my Jane Davenport pen around my "bubbles" and doodled to highlight them.  I finished with my sentiment from Create Bold Sentiments set and the CUTplorations Uppercase Die set
I sure hope I've inspired you today and be sure to continue hoppin' as there ar…
