Hello Friends! I have a new Bombshell Stamps Muse Monday project to share with you, and an art journal page. As you may recall, this month at Bombshell, I decided to highlight the All My Heart set. It just so happens that the latest Wicked Wednesday challenge is Celebrate the Season, and I thought I could make an ATC for the challenge with this set.
I’ve only got one picture, as my camera decided it didn’t feel like focusing. I’ve used 3 images from this set, plus a blank banner from Banner Sayings. I thought it would be interesting to stamp text on text, so I gave it a shot. I think the fact that I had the text facing 2 different directions made it work. I may just be startin’ to get the hang of making these ATC’s!
I also wanted to play along with Just Some Lines this week. The theme is “Love.” But I didn’t want to do a typical love project dealing with 2 people…..I wanted to art journal about my love of books.
I think this image is so cute! And it reminds me of me when I was younger, and my kids now. Always reading. Feeding our imagination. Are you reading anything right now? I just started The Host by Stephanie Meyer.
I colored the image with my alcohol markers. To make the page, I painted the background sort of an old paper color, then stamped around a heart stencil. I then added a stamp of an open book in each heart. Lastly I added the stars with Distress Inks and glues my image down. Oh! And I added my journaling, of course.
It’s tough to see the stamped books, as I did them in gray so as to not overpower the rest of the background. But in person, you can see them pretty clearly. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
