Sparkle & Shine art journal page


This months theme at the blog is anything but a card. And my favourite thing to do is making cards. But I do love to make art journal pages too and I've got a small art journal that is almost the size of a card, is that cheating? I made this page using Sparkle & Shine and the little star from Pick 'n Mix. I started by making blobs of color with Distress Paint, using the dauber straight to the page. When it was dry I stamped on top. The text is stamped with an old alphabet set I had in my stash. It's a quote from Roald Dahl. I added some dots with a pen to give it a more whimsical feel. Right now when I'm typing this I wish I would have added one of the clear sparkle embossing powders on top of the jewels. You could easily flip the jewel stamp over on the block and apply versamark ink on top of the stamped image and add embossing powder on top. I might go back and do that. 

I hope you like my no-card creation. I think it turned out pretty fun, I love making art journal pages. It's all about the process to me and I always enjoy doing something just for fun.

Supplies:
Sparkle & Shine Clear Stamp Set
Pick 'n Mix Clear Stamp Set

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.




I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!


Here are brief instructions on how to make it:



STEP ONE

Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

Happy memories - embossed background

I must admit I was having a bit of a problem coming up with a memory keeping project for this months post. I have been making almost only cards lately and had a bit of a problem filling a whole layout. I do make some layouts and lately I've been partial to letter sized layouts because the format remind me of cards and makes it easier for me to plan the page. This time I made a A4 sized layout because it's easier for me to find the page protectors in regular stores here. I used some good cardstock that doesn't warp much when you heat it or add water since i knew I would emboss it.
Here's what I did. I picked the pretty Chrysanthemum background stamp and embossed it in Silver Pearl embossing powder three times in a row across the background. I must admit I was more than a little inspired by Isha Guptas cards for her guest post earlier this week. I used distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon and applied with an ink blending tool randomly over the embossed are…
