Moon Flower Garden by Samantha Read

Image
Hello, Samantha here today and I'm sharing with you a home decor creation. Those of you who know my art will know that the moon appears in it's various phases, on most things I create, not that I'm obsessed with it or anything! I remember being a little girl, lying on the grass with dad looking at the moon and I asked him if flowers grew on the moon, he said, 'they might do'.  I think the best art we create is art from the heart, so when I matched up the fabulously fun Sketchy Flowers stamp set with this MDF moon and the Mixed Media Marks stamp set with the stars and Cape Canaveral postmark stamp I couldn't resist creating a moon flower garden of my own. The flowers were stamped on white card and coloured with watercolour paints. Every thing else is acrylic paints and the finer details were done with Posca paint pens. And that is a tear of happiness, we can't have the moon being sad! Here are the stamp sets I used: Sketchy Flowers #3 and Mixed Media Marks #3

Sketchy Leaves ATCs by Angie Coomber

 Hello arty friends, isn't the year going fast? Today I have some ATCs for you using some of the gorgeous new clear stamps! I've been doing a lot of mark making during a collage fodder course and have used some of that here. I've simply used bottle tops, old credit cards, empty medication blister  packs, bubble wrap etc to make marks on various substrates using black and white acrylic paint. I tore some of them into smaller pieces and glued them onto ATC size pieces of card (2.5 x 3.5 inches) to create a background. Next I added some neon pink splatter. I stamped some of the images onto watercolour paper using black permanent ink, and then coloured them in using watercolours. I cut them out and arranged them on the ATCs, then glued them down. I added some embossing round the edges and finally some Tim Holtz stickers. Until next time, hugs from Angie x Stamps used:  Sketchy Leaves (Clear)

"Two 2 Four" with new clear stamps by Farida

Hello Lovelies, I just started creating and than get the idea to have an new little challenge series for me.... "Two 2 Four". So let's come with me and read about my new idea.  First of all I got my hands on the new clear stamps... so I wanted to use the ' Pencil Marks #3 ' Stamp set. I choosed the large leaves branch and the rainbow. First I stamped them one time on watercolour paper and one time on marker paper.  And then I thought of the idea of doing two same cards with one image, using watercolours and alcohol maker to colour them in.  I tried some kind of loose or offset colouring on the leaves with my watercolours and afterwards made some colour splotches over it.  I like this kind of easy and loose colouring, thats why I used it to colour the rainbow the same way.  Next I tried to achieve a almost similiar looking colouring using my alcohol markers. Its not really looking the same, but I like them too how they came out. To turn the panels into a card, I ma

Focus on what's important

 Hi friends! Lisa today with my new art journal inspiration for Rubber Dance design team!  First I chose Pencil Marks #3 stamp set and I made some designs with versamark pad and white embossing powder. I added bright colors to the background with my favorite watercolors. I dried the page with the heat gun so I made a little stamping with black archival ink. Then I added flowers and a sticker for the focal point and I made splatters with gold liquid paint. I used these products from the shop: https://www.rubberdance.de/clear-stamps/pencil-marks-3-clear-0004/#cc-m-product-14534934633 https://www.rubberdance.de/clear-stamps/mixed-media-marks-1-clear-0001/#cc-m-product-14534935433 https://www.rubberdance.de/big-sheets/inky-flowers/#cc-m-product-14383087433 I hope you enjoyed my new art journal inspiration for you! Hugs, Lisa
