Hello, there crafty folks,

It’s art journal Wednesday and this week I kept it short and sweet. I have been tired lately from day job work and I needed a little unwind one evening. I just received a new batch of Art Foamies and I decided getting paint all over me was just what I needed. For this project I:

  1. Grabbed two sheets of mixed media paper
  2. Took out several of my favorite dylusions paint colors
  3. Used my new gelli plates from the Dylusions Dina Wakley collaboration
  4. Picked two new art foamies to use.

I first applied the Dylusions paints to my Gelli plate, only 2-3 colors at a time and then flipped it onto the mixed media paper to make the background. This was quick, messy and fun!. I then grabbed my Art Foamies and dabbed them in black paint and stamped them onto my paper. I was first using my Gelli plate as my palette but that just didn’t hold enough paint for me. I then switched to by stamp buddy (the applicator that comes with the art foamies) and that did the trick. I did one sheet with a rose and the other with a start. I have really been in the mood lately to just make backgrounds and use my stamps on them to stash away for ATC swaps, happy mail, journal swaps or just for use later for a quick page.

You can see the photos below of how they turned out

Also here is my process video to get more detail on how I got these looks:
