Journaling on the Go- Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks 2 & Stamps background

Hello lovely followers and a Happy 4th of July for those of you in the states.

Today is another art journal Wednesday, but for this week I thought I’d do something different. I have been trying to figure out how to color in some of my favorite stamps for some premade cutouts to keep with me in case I want a quick journal page or to take on the go. I’ve not enjoyed coloring in with watercolors or my markers so far, still figuring that one out. I decided instead to have a play on some of the watercolor paper in my Dina Wakley Mixed Media Journal. I tore out three pages, I gessoed them, I used scribble sticks and my gel plates from the Dina Wakley/Dylusions line to make the background and then I stamped on top of those. I am now addicted. I had so much fun that next, I am going to do the same but use one of my Dylusions journals and Dylusions paints. What I found interesting about the ones I did on the Dina Wakley media paper, is that maybe because they were gessoed and then I used water on them, they softened and I could tear the images out and they left this really soft cotton edge. So if you haven’t tried this method yet, it is a great, fun way to play with your Gelli plates and experiment with the journals you already have. Now I know what your thinking, I TORE OUT PAGES, yes I know it was tough but it made for a very fun afternoon and a new way of looking at my journals.

You can find the full video here on my youtube channel:

Here are photos of the project in three phases. First, you will see the pages with just the scribble stick backgrounds, then the stamped pages, and lastly the torn up pages.

My First Vlog

Hi Guys,

I am super excited to have tried my hand at my very first mini vlog. I filmed this on my day out last Sunday with my hubby, when I went to my favorite craft store because they were having a semi-annual clearance sale. I got a few goodies. So please check it out and let me know what you think. I plan to do another one to post for next week from Stampfest I am going to tomorrow in Kissimmee, where Tim Holtz will be demoing at the stampers anonymous booth.  Happy Friday!!!

Handmade Steampunk “Inspire” Card

Handmade Steampunk “Inspire” Card

Over the weekend I dove into the world of cardmaking. I pulled out some stamps I hadn’t used in quite awhile and had a play at making a steampunk “inspire” card to send out with some happy mail. I got to use my Distress Oxides, Tim Holtz Mica Sprays, and my new Tonic Stamping platform. I had so much fun I think I may end up being on a card kick for a while now. Some may even show up in my Etsy shop for custom orders!

You can see my process video over on my youtube channel: Handmade Steampunk Card

Here are some still shots for you below:

What a great way to use stamps that have been collecting dust. Just a little bit of sparkle and some chit chat quotes and you have your own custom card.

Happy Crafting!

Happy Saturday! I hope you are having a nice relaxing weekend. For this Saturday’s art journal share I am showing a page from my Dina Wakley large media journal. This week I just felt like going big and really spreading out. It also gave me a chance to play with some of my larger 12″ x 12″ stencils, which I don’t get to use that often. For a while, I had been feeling an urge to do a large spread with an elephant on it, in this case, a Ganesh image. It just felt right and I love how it turned out. Below for your viewing pleasure is my link to the video on my youtube channel, some still shots, and of course, my list of supplies used. I hope this page will get you to dust off those large journals and just have a weekend play. Happy journaling!

Good Morning,

Earlier this week I saw a post from Ranger Ink Industries on social media saying to “stay tuned” for something. So I waited, and then I saw on facebook a post that they were doing a June Mystery Box. For 19.99 plus shipping you could get a box of Ranger products that were being discontinued.
