Smile – STAMPlorations Stencil Sunday

Hello lovelies, and just like that it is 2017!!! I hope you had a lovely, relaxing holiday season and are ready to kickstart another creative year!! Let´s beginn with an exersize that is easy to do 🙂 – a challenge! Here we go:

How about you create something fun in mixed media style and join our January challenge over at the STAMPlorations blog. Joining is easy, just make sure you create something mixed media using at least one stencil and place the above image with a correct link to your blog. PLUS make sure you are not submitting cards – those are the only ones not accepted.

Here is what I did as an inspiration for this months challenge reveal:

Sanna Lippert - stenciled art journal sheet

I started by applying turquoise Sennelier acrylic paint with an old credit card onto the art journal sheet. After that layer was dry, I added white acrylic paint droplets with a paint brush onto the blue surface. White that layer was drying, I took some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists out and misted on a white paper in yellow, light green, kiwi and red.

White the misted paper was drying, I took the Some Birds stencil and used it as a drawing guide with a black pen. I then had a bunch a birdies flying on my page. Next I colored them with a black pen.

After that I stamped some feathers with the Trendy Feathers 2 clear stamp set onto the misted paper and fussy cut those images. Then I stamped a sentiment that would suit my journal page and fussy cut that too. Now all I needed to do was to layer these pieces onto the page. I also added some white gel pen details onto the feathers and some glitter glue for interest. I outlined the page with a black pen and added the date. That way I´ll later know when I created this sheet. Here is the finished page.

Sanna Lippert - miss you home die cut cardYou can see details of this release over here. I just know you are going to love the new dies!!! Just look at the Leaf, Rose and Lace pockets, aren´t they gorgeous? And what about the various leaves and branches – big heart eyes here for those :). The Lacy Poppies and all the Love-themed dies, oh boy. I adore this release!! I will be using these ALL-THE-TIME!!

So here is my card, how convinient, it is totally trendy in greens (see Pantone color of the year ;-)…). I´ve misted all the die cut pieces with various green spray ink colours and covered small parts of the branches/leaves with Crackle Accents for a fun detail. By the way, I really, really like the Pantone spring colours too. Some of my all time faves there too. Such a nice top 10!!

That´s it for today :). Let´s stay creative!
