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!

This is pretty darn awesome! It is very unusual with no lines to make the outer edges. I like it!
