Song Bird Art Journal Page


Hello! I'm sure you've been loving all of the n* Studio for Stampendous projects this week, and I have another one to share with you today. But first, take a look at the prizes that can be won.

For full details on how to try winning, please visit the Stampendous Blog. Now...on to my project. I decided to have a little fun with art journaling today.

I used the Bird Foam Stamp, Cling Stamp and Stencil Set for this page. I started off with my background, applying some yummy Dylusions paint and using the negative pieces of the stencil. Then I used the main part of the stencil to get the teal laid down. Next I used yellow, and added some detail with the pen that comes with Stampendous' Stencil Duos.

Then I painted the solid foam side of the bird and stamped it on to my page. Next, I stamped the cling stamp on top with some embossing ink. I then sprinkled some Detail White and heat set it. See the pretty sheen on the bird? It has nice texture too. I wrote "I love to hear the birds sing in the Springtime" around the bird. I am always inspired by the song birds that I hear outside my windows when I craft. Want more info on these great sets? HERE is a link to a great video with Nathalie using them. Below is a list of all the hoppers for today. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
