One of the girls I work with has this black leather wrap bracelet and it has this amazing quote on it. I borrowed it from her the other day at work and copied it out as I really wanted to put it on an Art Journal page. I also have the Lindy’s Stamp Gang Color Shots in the Tres Chic that have been calling my name for a while now. I decided to add water to them and use them as a water color. (more because I don’t have any acrylic medium or glaze) lol. You can find these in Limor Webber’s wonderful store and I’ve linked up any of the products I used that were purchased from her store – here’s a link to the Color Shots. I love the Flat Shots and the white undertones of this Tres Chic set are so fun to play with! I colored my background in with three of the colors and allowed them to blend and bleed together just a bit. I used Chateau Rose, Bonjour Butter and Merci Beaucoup Mint. I did some stamping with one of the heart stamps from Dina Wakely’s Media stamp set called Collaged Hearts, and I used my Faber Castell PITT artist big brush pen as the ink to stamp with. Love that pen and use it ALL the time!! I used a rub-on from one of my Tim Holtz sets called Remnant Rubs “Elements”. There are sooo many rub-ons in his sets, it’s awesome! I layered some cheese cloth, Prima flowers from my stash and some Prima metal (Ingvild Bolme ShabbyChic *Door Signs* and one of the clocks cut in half from the Junkyard Findings Clock Faces set). A couple of my flowers were a bit too white for me as were the Prima metal embellishments so I took two of my Prima Resist Chalk Edgers in the Old Rose and Lime Pie and applied them to my craft mat, added some water and ‘painted’ them. Added my quote and some splatters and distressed the edges of the stamped hearts and the page with my Stabilo All pencil (my favorite charcoal pencil ever!!)
Here’s what my page ended up looking like:
Here are some close-ups:
So, that’s it! This little journal only has a couple pages left to do and it’ll be full!
