Hi there, it´s time to share this months STAMPlorations Mixed Media Challenge with you today.
This month, I again opened my art journal and played a little. This is my challenge reveal take:
It all started with the purple Glimmer Mist splodges that had already been there on the white page. See, I tend to grab a loose piece of paper OR my art journal when I have residue ink, paint or other media left over from one project I am working on at the moment and very randomly adding the residue onto my art journal or a loose piece of paper. I then use these pages and pieces as my starting point for another project later. So that is what happened here. I had been misting with Glimmer Mist and there was so much spray ink left over that I randomly pressed my art journal page onto it to save the color. Those splodges create the base for this page.
For this page, I then started by adding stenicled layers. I stenciled Distress Oxides thru “Hidden Hearts”, “Super Bubbles” and “Bubble Dance” stencils in various oxide colours onto the background. I must say, I like blending those inks with my blending brush. The results are so nice and soft. A great contrast to the Glimmer Mist splodges! I´ve, by the way listed all products used on this page on the supply list, so you don´t have to wonder which tone is which :). After stenciling, I swapped to stamping. I took the lovely “Mixed Media Grunge” stamp set to create the arrows, circles and tiny dot patterns onto the page. Then I added a stamped sentiment as a centerpiece to the page using the “Wanderlust Expressions 1” stamp set.
For finishing touches I added Posca Pen details, Tattered Angels Chalkboard Ink and Glimmer Mist ink splatters. That´s my project for this months reveal. I hope you get inspired and play with us!!! Just remember to play by the rules (read here). Have fun!!
