My Art Journal

It is the weekend!!  So I have had a lot of crafting projects lately. How am I going to show them to people that do not do the blog thing? We I decided to start an art journal. 

To get started I stamped and white embossed  "My Crafty Stuff" using letters from Inkadinkado and American crafts. Next I stamped image on the page in Archival Ink from Ranger. Finally I inked areas with the Spring and Summer Distress Inks from Ranger.
I pulled out a piece of stencil material from my stash and my Sizzix Sizzlits and went to work creating a stencil.

I sponged over the stencil with the Distress Ink's again giving a two tone effect. I embellished with stickers from Studio 112. Finally I lightly spritzed the page with Perfect Pearls Mist. And here is the final project.

Thanks for stopping by!

I am submitting this to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge :


  1. Fabulous project! Love the stencil you made. Beautiful colours, layers and design. Thank you for playing along with us at Simon Says Stamp & Show!

  2. Your art journal page is beautiful! I love the blended, muted colors and then the polka dots that you've added in the same colors, only richer. Your stamping and then letters you've added are very cute, too! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
