Doodlie Doo with Dreamweaver and Stampendous!

Hello! Today I have an art journal project to share with you. It's been a long time since I have made one, and the theme with Stampendous! and Dreamweaver this week is perfect for it. Doodlie Doo!


I started off with the beautiful Butterfly stencil. I love that this stencil is the shape that it is, without having extra metal around the image. Makes it much easier to play with colors around the image. I used a few of the lovely Radiant Neon inks from Imagine Crafts and some sponge daubers to apply colors around the butterfly. Next, I used Stampendous' Life is Art stamp, that I had inked with black Memnto ink. Then, I used Shimmery Silver Delicata ink, pad direct to paper.

I heat set the inks to keep them from smudging and so that they would be nice and dry for my next step. I put the stencil back on my page, and grabbed my Faber-Castell black PITT pen S. And I started to doodle. Now, I don't usually doodle. I kinda stink at it. I just struggle with it, so this was a (fun) challenge for me. I kept my lines fairly simple, and whatever I did on one side, I did on the other. This kept me from getting confused...which could have happened really easily here. ;)

Look at the gorgeous shimmer from that silver ink! So pretty! It was good to jump back into art journaling. I hope to create more pages soon. There are other folks sharing Doodlie Doo projects today, so I hope you will visit them too! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

February Smeared & Smudged Sketch Challenge

The new Smeared & Smudged challenges are up and ready for you to participate in! I got instantly inspired by Kelli’s card sketch for the month, as I have been working with different ideas for my next “Tarot Card.” Haha! That’s actually pretty funny! If you’ve been checking in over the past couple of weeks, you may have seen my Misty Benson Tarot Set 1 ( Smeared Ink ) cards. I’ve used The World and The Fool so far. Today, I bring you Death. Don’t worry…it’s actually a joyful image…one that I intend to use a lot! First, here’s the sketch. I flipped it and changed the ribbon and embellishment a bit. Can I just start off by saying that it is quite nerve wracking to slice your image??? I have done it a few times in the past, but I always get butterflies when I attempt it again. I colored the image and the card itself using nothing but Distress Inks and my Cut-n-Dry Nibs. My skull button at the top has been colored with Alcohol Inks.   The colors look a little off to m

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga
