Balancing Time

Hello! This week, the Stampendous team has been sharing projects using some of the new 6" x 6" Cling Stamps. There are quite a few to choose from, and because of that, I decided to use 2 of them on today's project. I was very inspired by the Clock Collage stamp. Balancing time is always an issue, especially when you're a mom, a crafter, have a job, etc. I am sure that many of you are in the same boat that I'm in.
I started off by applying a few shades of ink from Imagine.  I used VersaMagic in Turquoise Gem and Grapefruit, plus New Sprout Memento in the tear drop shapes applicators and just swiped the color across my journal. Next, I stamped the Clock Collage. Given that the stamp is a 6" x 6" square, and my journal is a rectangle, I had some holes around the edges that I needed to fill. Since there is already cracking in the Clock Collage stamp, I decided to use the Crackle stamp to fill in the gaps. I'll be using that Crackle stamp a whole lot, and anyone that does Mixed Media is going to want to get their hands on this big stamp.

I needed some words or quotes to help explain what I was feeling when I created this page, so I used a couple Laurel Burch stamps. The sentiment on the right is from the Floral Reflections set, and the "Balance" and border on the left, plus the spots on the right are from the Kindred Borders set. I sprayed both of those pieces with Fireworks! Spray for added shimmer.

After I attached the sentiments, I used my palette knife to apply some Copper Embossing Paste randomly on the page. I needed more texture though. So I shook up some Wedding Dress irRESISTable Spray and dropped it on to the page and let it dry. I felt the page was done at this point. I was happy that I took the "time" to play in my art journal since it's been ages since I've done so.

That's it for me today. Please visit the Stampendous Blog to see more fun projects using the 6" x 6" Cling Stamps. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
