January Stencil Challenge Reminder – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Have you played along with the STAMPlorations January Stencil Challenge yet? No? Don´t worry – there is still enough time to join in. So speaking of joining in, the DT girls have prepared another inspiration post for you guys.

Here is my take for it:

The background was created using Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays. I love the effect they create!!! Love, love, love it! And on top I´ve added some stenciled pattern with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. I used one of my new stencils, called Abstract April Showers. And on top for decor I added one of Tim Holtz paper dolls and a handwritten sentiment, made by my dear friend Lizzy.

This is the reminder post for the January 2021 stencil challenge and if you haven´t joined in with us yet, I sure hope you do. There is still plenty of time to play along with us. Let´s make this a great year project wise and get those PHD´s (projects half done) done and dusted. And if it has stenciling on it, you are good to go and submit it to this challenge :)!

Remember to play by the rules (listed at the end of the challenge post) to be eligible for the prizes!!! And other than that, have fun creating!!! Cannot wait to see what you make! Also, feel free to take advantage of my personal discount code at STAMPLorations:

Happy stenciling,

Mixed media “tags”

Hello everyone and happy Sunday! Today I´m stopping by to share a set of “tags” with you. I call them tags, but they are actually just wripped off pages from a small journal. I have been following Dina Wakley´s Facebook lives throughout the physical distansing period and have gotten addicted to her products :).

And on Friday these beauties arrived!! I had finally given in and ordered myself the gloss sprays!! And a few of Dina´s paints and some other goodies (by Tim Holtz). Thanks, Art From The Heart for the fast delivery!!

And then I started to play – I hadn´t used the sprays before, so there was lots of “spray and learn” things going on in my studio. And once I got the hang of it, I did a few tags, a few art journal pages and such. Here is the first “tag” set featuring some of Dina´s products.

I also used a spray ink by Lindy´s on the background (the brown one), but the rest is by Dina, Tim and Dyan. You guys cannot imagine how much fun I had!!!

On this one I just wiped some residue heavy body paint onto the background, then dabbed some residue gloss spray onto it and took a paint comb and did the pattern. Then Lindy´s spray on top and for finishing touches Dina´s washi and bits and pieces from her collage collective book and Dyan´s journal cover slip.

For the second one I did he background again with Lindy´s brown spray. Then I took bits from Collage Collective book and cut them into pieces and created the cluster. The stamping is done using StazOn stamp ink in dark grey and Tim´s stamp set called Tiny Text. I also drew a leaf branch with Scribble Sticks and added a button.

I really like the tags – I am for sure going to incorporate them either into an art journal page or onto a card at some point. We´ll see.

Happy crafting,
