“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!

Evolve – Random 52 Weekly Prompt Card Art Journal Page

Random 52 – Evolve

I was in the mood to have another play with one of my Random 52 weekly prompt cards – and drew out the word “Evolve”. I wanted to create something a little grungy and I knew I wanted it to have a slight steampunk vibe and this composite image that I call “Gilly”, was just the ticket!
