Loved making this grungy spage using a handcarved stamp as well as my Urban Scribble and Grunge Stamp Set.

I added some marks and painted details to blend the elements together and I like the overall feel of this page.

This art journal spread reminds me how excited I am every time I come home from traveling and how happy it makes me to see the statue of liberty and the skyline of Jersey City and New Jersey and sometimes even my house from the airplane. I guess I am home here now *wink

Here are some of the supplies I used for this art journal spread – some are affiliate links:

    Oh wow – these pages are just amazing Nat. There is so much to see and so much dimension – the buildings go in and out and up and down and it’s just sooooo awesome. Seems like THIS needs to be a painting SOON. It’s really splendid. Xj.

Don’t Want it Back or … In My Art Journal Today

I think it’s important to realize you can miss something, but not want it back. – HT Paul Coelho

What a great and true quote!

I limited my self for the background to Red painted over some collaged areas, titanium white and black and added some swatches of teal here and there. I stamped with the Urban Scribble, the Mish Mesh and the Mark Maker Stampset and also used the stencil in the Urban Scribble set, adding paint and taking it off with black and titanium white too.

For the journaling I used a brown acrylic marker and overwrote with a white signo pen to make it pop a bit more. The image was also overpainted with markers.

Fun – I love the teal and red – now I want to wear it 🙂

    You are so right Nat – the red and teal are luscious together! What an interesting quote – I like it. This is a super journal creation. What I love the most is that you used your stamps in such an artistic way. They are not ‘obvious’ – they are just part of the art. I love using stamps that way but I have had some folks be a bit offended because it “alters” the stamp so to speak! You know that your Urban Scribble is my fav so I am just thrilled to see it on this project but not really SEE it in it’s full beauty! The Mish Mash is there and looks great but it’s not intact – love that. You cannot image how often I use your Fiesta stamps in my backgrounds and they are perfect… but many times they are not totally there!!! Anyway – I’m rambling but just wanted to say… as always… I LOVE YOUR ART – in whatever form it displays itself 🙂 XXj.

    ALL OF THEM sound the most interesting Nat because YOU are teaching them! Perhaps the colorful backgrounds would be my first choice but not sure that’s right either!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SUPER choice of topics. So excited that you did these. I know they will be a great resource for us all. XXj.
