More Journal Steps with Inky Friends by Ellie Knol

 Hi all, Ellie here again!  Another fun mixed media art journal page today: Remember this post ?     I've used the same recipe for another journal page and the other beautiful butterfly images from Inky Friends. Other colors, other stamps, other stencil.  I've used the same steps...  ... but heat embossed the torn strip in white after adding a layer of acrylic paint. When still hot, I stamped into the heat embossing with a script stamp. Some close-ups... Adding white splatters finishes it off.  As you can see, just changing a litlle makes for another beautiful art journal page.  Have a nice day!    Rubber Dance Stamps: The Rubber Dance Webshop Inky Friends Grungy Swirls Old Book Page   Mixed Media Marks

ATB Trio by Samantha Read

Hello, Samantha here today, you may recall that I've recently made two Artist Trading Blocks....  Today I'd like to share with you my third which completes my project, beware - lots of photos! At first I found ATB's quite daunting, there's a lot of surfaces to be covered, but if you just take it one side at a time, it's great fun. It's a great opportunity to really raid your stash and get creative and use lots of your Rubber Dance stamps! Here are all three together, showing all sides. I hope I have inspired you, for more information please join the Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge on Facebook here . Here's the stamps I used for my today's ATB: Purr-fect!

Arty Hearty Tags with Inky Friends by Toni

Hey everyone, Toni here.  Today I've got not one but two tags!  I mean why not when you have some oxide ink left over?  I call it the mop up tag....... Firstly I used some Oxide Ink in Weathered Wood, Tattered Rose & Black Soot  I wanted a watercolour effect Then I did some stencilling and stamping using Mixed Media Marks & Mix a Sentiment #1 as background stamps  I used my sewing machine to add more texture round the edge of the tags. I'm loving this affect at the moment! The I stamped two hearts using Arty Hearty , placed the smaller heart inside the larger one and adhered the butterflies from the Inky Friends stamp set  I used the inks to paint and add some detail then I stamped over the top with Mix a Sentiment #1 .  I also used some embossing glaze on the wings  And finally added a sentiment from the Mix a Sentiment #1 stamp set  Thank you for joining me I hope you have a fabulous week  I have made a quick time lapse of the tags' background, You can vi
