Art Journal Page – “She Wanted No Reminder…”

There being nothing on the TV on Sunday afternoon (again) and as I was all alone (apart from Mr Bentley that is!), I decided to seek refuge and entertainment in my art room.

I was also in a vintage kind of mood. I had the urge to create something with muted neutral hues and a vintage cluster style art journal page was just the thing to take my mind off things. It was a fun double page spread to put together and I like the fact that you have a double whammy of the focal points and the way the large one vanishes into the background or looks like she’s emerging from the background depending on your point of view!

“Anywhere” Mixed Media Art Journal Page Play

Today I’m having an intuitive play with my new Mid Mod #1 stamp set. I wanted to play with two of the stamps in particular with a warm colour palette and with some new DecoArt Americana acrylic paints I’ve recently purchased.

It turned out OK – given that there were some problems with the stamping due to the irregular surface of the paper once I’d added the background colours! Lessons learned there today – so not a day wasted!

“Bee Bold” – Mixed Media Artist Trading Cards (ATCs)

I was in the mood to create something today, but didn’t want to create anything big or major – so I dipped into my stamp collection to create a set of 6 Artist Trading Cards (ATCs). The stamp I’ve used is the IndigoBlu Collectors Edition No9 “Bumblebee” stamp and some 300gsm (140lb) watercolour cardstock. The ATCs measure 2.5″(w) x 3.5″(h) and are a really fun way to create something even when you’re not really in the mood to create anything more complicated! Plus they’re fun to give away or swap with your friends!
