Echo Chamber

In this journal spread I wrote “Like in an echo chamber a saddening, frightening and yet empowering #metoo echoed through the universe.”

I drew the left women with ink using a bamboo sketching pen and colored her in with watercolor- the right one is a painted on deli paper which I collaged into the art journal.

I stamped with some of my ArtFoamies stamps and acrylic paint and added some mars with Neopastels and a Charcoal pen.

Here are some of the supplies I used for this spread

Marble Marvel Or…ALMOST Senseless Post Title

Why ALMOST senseless post title? Well – my brain runs weird sometimes. I was going to work with some photos taken in Amalfi in Italy and that lead to thinking of the awesome marbled notebook I bought there with Amalfi Paper, which reminded me of the sheet of marbled paper I made showing the technique in my Über*Media Acrylic Ink  Online Workshop and so I used that. Well…and Marbel and Marvel..they rhyme…but…really…let’s just stop  LOL …because who knows what other nonsense I come up with posting today ;)

 

Supplies: Cardstock, Liquitex Acrylic Inks, stamps: Autumn Leaves and Stamper’s Anonymous, Scrapbook Adhesive by 3 L MyStik. Heidi Swapp Chipboard Letters, Molotow Markers

For this layout I actually got some of my former most favorite stamps out- these crazy stitches by Autumn Leaves. I found them while rummaging on the search for something for my friend Sandra who wanted to take some stamps with her for a kid’s school project. I was so giddy when I found them  (she probably makes a good imitation of me finding them ;) ) …I had to use them right away!

What are you favorite stamps?

huge hugs

Nat

    I really like that stamp of stitches…looks so real. I love my Tim Holtz stamps the best because they leave a clear impression. So many stamps that I have just don’t come out clearly.
