Over the Rainbow by Samantha Read

Hello, Samantha here today and I'd love to share with you a page I made for my art journal.

It's my first proper art journal and I've discovered that working on both sides of a piece of paper sometimes inks, paints and sprays show on the other side, this is what happened here, there was a big blob in the middle so I used a smaller piece of card and painted it and created a frame, I'm really pleased with how the components are in the central area and the white border, and the contrast in colours makes it quite dramatic.

One of the things I love about Rubber Dance stamps is that different sets work well alone or when mixed together as I have done for this page.

All of the stamped images were embossed, coloured with watercolours and cut out, embossing your stamped images gives a lovely crisp finish and the slightly raised line helps contain your watercolours.

I had great fun making this page, thanks so much for looking.
It would be great to see your creations with Rubber Dance stamps, you can join in with us in the Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge on Facebook, click here.

Wishing you a lovely day, Sam xx

Here's the stamps I used to create my page:

Art Journal Spread by Shilpa

Hello Everyone, Shilpa here, I would like to share Art Journal spread, I created with beautiful butterfly stamps.

To start with, I have created the background with Distress Paints and Distress Oxide Inks. I also did stenciling with white paint on it. Next layers were created with Rubber Dance texture and text stamps.

On another paper, I stamped butterflies from Grungy Butterflies stamp set and colored them with inks. 

Sentiments are from Mix a Sentiments 1 and 2, its beautiful collection of words stamp sets by Susanne.

I enjoyed playing with stamps and colors !!

Art journal Page by Lisa Rabellino

Hi creative souls!
Lisa today on the blog to share with you my new art journal page playing with beautiful Rubber Dance stamps and watercolors!

To start I glued some pieces of book page and I brushed a coat of clear gesso.

Then with a spatula I added white gesso ti create white spaces on my page.

I finished my background with some paper doilies and so I colored with my favorite watercolors.

Once dry I made stamping with Mix A Sentiment #2 and Textured Flowers stamps set and archival inks.

I made splatters with white liquid paint and I stamped some flowers on a piece of white cardstock, I cutted them and glued on my page.
With Journal Words stamp set I chose my sentiment and finally I made other splatters with teal liquid paint.

Here some close up photos:

I used these stamps from the store:

 Mix a Sentiment #2

Textured Flowers

Journal Words

I hope you enjoyed my inspiration today!
Hugs, Lisa
