Scrap Diary by Angie Coomber

Image
 Hello arty friends, Angie here with a page in my art journal. Recently I have seen someone keeping a scrap diary, meaning they collect bits and pieces from their desk, for example their underpaper or mop up pages, choosing the most interesting sections and cutting them into equal sized pieces, then gluing them onto a page for every month. Over time this provides a kind of record of the type of art you've been creating. I picked the pieces below to start with, about 3 of each colour. I worked out how many pieces would fit on my double page and chose the 12 I liked the most. I used the Carved Collection #1 and Pencil Marks #1 stamp sets to stamp on the squares, using black Archival Ink. Next I roughly sorted the squares into rainbow colours (one of my go-to's when I can't decide which order to put things in, haha), then glued them onto my journal pages. Finally I roughly outlined all of the squares with a black fineliner. I quite like this simple geometric design! Until next

Atc´s Pencil Marks

  Hi, I'm Vero (@ Vero.kt) and I welcome you to today's inspiration. How's everybody ? I've been playing  with   Mixed media marks 1 ,   Pencil marks  4 ,  and   Round in circle   to  create a  colorful Atc´s that I hope you like . Very easy to do, we started. We cut watercolor paper to a size of 2.5 x 3.5 inches, if you prefer to work in cm, 6.4x8.9. In my case, the paper is smooth and hot pressed, and I color the backgrounds with pigments. When the backgrounds dry (we can speed up the process with a heat gun) we will add texture and depth with different inks, in my case I have used distress oxide.To start, I choose a stamp from the  Mixed media marks  , apply the inks, spray water, and stamp, (I'm not looking for definition, I'm looking for a watercolor effect, watery). Help myself with the dryer and go back to stamp with different inks, to continue adding depth and texture. To add light and integrate the background, apply hot embossing in white One of the par

Strange Little Fish Card by Gail

Image
Hello Rubber Dance friends.  Gail here.  Some days I like to grab some stamps I haven't used for a while and just have a play.  Something Fishy is a great set for masculine makes so I decided to stamp one of the fish multiple times on a sheet of blue card using masking and blue ink. I felt it needed some texture so I used an embossing folder and lightly smeared the raised areas with grey ink. A little white gel pen on the fish eyes and I cut the panel and mounted it on a 10cm x 15cm dark blue panel.  The first base card that came to hand was white 10cm x 10cm and it looked quite cool, like an artist's easel, so I went with it.   Grab your stamps, have some fun and don't forget to share in the Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge for a chance to win a voucher to the Rubber Dance shop.  Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz   Rubber Dance links: Website Facebook Pinterest Blog Instagram YouTube

Night Scene Tag by Priss

Hello lovelies, so nice to be here on the blog again. I'm  Priss  and I'd like to share with you this Tag in blue and orange colors. How's everybody? I'm fine now, but the last week has been too hot and I don't really function very well when the temperatures are that extreme. Luckily this week they are giving us a break. That's why I made this tag with a fresh and pleasant night scene. But with a message of hope and change, because together we can help improve the climate change that is causing these strong heat waves. Maybe you remember this another tag by me in the same colors. Well, this is one of the two backgrounds that I made this time.  Now I just play around with  Mixed Media Marks #3  in blue, orange, and black. Stamp some stars of the set  Night & Day Big .  For my night scene, I stamped and painted a gorgeous moon, some clouds, and the building of the set  Happy Place . I really hope you like it and remember this "Spread Hope" and "
