Art journal page with I love leaves stampset by Jessica

 Hello crafty friends.

Today I will share an art journal page with I love leaves stamp set. I have also used Butterfly Girl 1.

I have stamped and embossed some of the leaves from the stamp set - I love leaves
Then I have stamped some more of them with black ink.
I applied modeling paste through a stencil.
After drying my page I colored my page with infusions from Paperartsy.
I forgot to prime my page with gesso and the colors dosen´t flow the way I wanted, but oh well...
I have a process video here where you can watch the process.

Here are some closeup pictures.

Stamp set used in my art journal page.

I hope you have gathered some inspiration.
Have a crafty week!

Keep Taking Chances By Dot

 Hi everyone,
It's Dot here today with a fun card using the This Is Me
and Butterfly Trio stamp sets.
Every now and then it is fun to play with black and white
in my work and then simply add a splash of colour to finish with.
That is what happened with this card.

The lovely girl image was stamped and masked
then spots of stenciling was added in random places with black oxide ink.
More stenciling was added to the top corner
to help balance it out.

The butterfly, from Butterfly Trio, was stamped, coloured with pencils and 
then cut out. Because it is a black and white card
parts of the butterfly have been left un-coloured.
The antennae was added with a black fine liner.

'Keep taking chances' is one of the sayings from the
This Is Me set.  There are plenty of awesome words to choose from.
The words have been randomly stamped so that they appear behind and
in front of the girl image.
Some words are stamped in black and some in orange so that the 
butterfly blends in more.

This is a perfect reminder to myself to keep 
moving forward, to take chances and to just 'go for it'.

The stamp sets used are:

Butterfly Trio

A reminder that we have a Mood Board for inspiration and it
can be found over in our facebook group.

We hope to see you there!

In the meantime, I will you a really crafty day!

Altered Book Page by Angie Coomber

 Hello arty friends, how are you all doing? 

It has been very hot in my part of the UK and I am writing this in front of a lovely cool fan - bliss!

For this layout I worked in one of my altered books. I use this one for monochrome pages, so I only use black, white and a pop of colour. I really enjoy challenging myself to use this limited amount of supplies - give it a try!
First I used some gel medium to glue a crumpled piece of tissue paper to my pages - this adds a lovely texture.

Atc´s Friends Fur-ever

 Hello and welcome to Monday's post. How's everybody? I enjoy and have fun creating colorful Atcs, I hope you like them.

I've also been playing with Mixed media marks ,Collage Elemnts and Friends Fur-everVery easy to do, we start. We cut watercolor paper in a size  2,5 x 3,5 inches. In my case, the paper smooth and hot pressed.And I color the backgrounds with inks.

When the backgrounds dries (we can speed up the process with a heat gun) we're going to add texture and depth with permanent black ink, and with oxide inks here and there.

One of the parts that I enjoy the most is the composition, I have to admit that it is usually the part that takes me the most.I start by punching a wooden fence out of craft cardboard,

 Here are the Rubber Dance Stamps I used

Enjoy your week and stay smart! Oh, and don't forget to join our rubber stamping room to see many more team inspirations.

ATC cards with Inky Friends by Mariken

 Hi everyone, 
Mariken here, with making some ATC cards with the beautiful Inky Friends.
This time I've used the stamps Inky Friends, Art Defined and Round in Circles.

Please follow the photo's below...
I used a stencil and inks and sponged some colors.

  I placed my stencil in another position and sponged some colors again.

After putting the colors on my paper I used the Round in Circles and white embossing powder.

          I cutted white cards and the fronts of my ATC cards in 2.5 x 3.5 inches
and glued them.

                                               I made some marks with acrylic inks.

Then it's time to stamp the Inky Friends,
emboss them with white embossingpowder
and color them with watercolors.

I cutted out my little friends.
Finally I added some black marks with the Art Defined stamps,
and stamped the word DREAM on the side.

Here below you see the result, six different ATC cards.

 The stamps I used:

A little reminder that our Mood Board Challenge August continues in
We hope to see you there.

Thank you so much for your visit and enjoy your day!
