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!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
