Stamp stamp stamp!

Evening peeps, welcome to my Sunday evening. It's nice that you have taken the time to visit me. We are all so busy, so finding time to visit others can be difficult. I hope you enjoy my journal page. I feel quite excited when I look at it, which Is something I don't often experience when I look at my art. Yet get a lot looking at all your wonderful creations.

Yesterday I used a Julie Nutting Doll blank side up once she had been cut out. I really liked the idea and so thought I'd play with it again. 

I am going to enter the page into the Craft Stamper Challenge. On their blog they say this

'Take A Stamp'

 So.....get stamping and entering! You will be amazed at the prize on offer for one lucky randomly drawn winner..... Brace Yourself.... See for yourself here

I cut one out and stamped over the White with Black Archival using the eye from IndigoBlu stamp plate Take time

For my back ground I used Dina Wakley Acrylics on my 6x6 Gelli Plate. I was using my small Dyan Reavery journal which I bought for another project but I love it so much, I cannot stop using it :).

I toned it down using Chalk Fresco Acrylic from Paper Artsy; this has become my favourite white paint and my go to bottle sits on my desk permanently. I used a Brayer as Demoed by Leandra a while back as I love this technique and find myself using it more and more.

I also used a Lin Brown Stencil to create some circles. I sprayed shimmer yellow and purple.

I stamped a border and some dangles using Black Archival with some of my own stamps made from fun foam and hand carved.

Next came my doll, I thought about how to present her and came up with this.

I then added some flowers from a Darcy 09 plate, again in Black Archival. I chose to leave it uncoloured.

To balance the page I used another smaller Tag. Both Tags had been painted with DecoArt blackboard paint. They had a nice Matt finish.

I added some flower die cuts the bottom flower from Paper Artsy and the other from a packet of mixed  flowers.

I stamped a flower spray from JOFY 14 and coloured it white. I repeated the theme of the other Tag.

I added my sentiment and some bubbles to tie the page together, and I kept them black and white to add balance.

Some shots from different angles, I love these and will be printing some off.

Here is the full Page

Take care out there! See you soon
