Where You Find Light – Art Journal

Here is a another art journal spread using the hand carved stamp I showed in my Creative JumpStart 2019 class video ( you can still join us if you want – lots of fun tutorials). Here I inked it up with black archival ink

and used it cut apart as shown in the tutorial. I also used it with my RubberMoon Rubberstamps – I love the mix of hand carved and hand sketched next to each other.

I painted the stamped images and the background in with acrylic inks and acrylic gouache and added the journaling with a white sharpie. Love how the colors glow.

Here are some of the supplies I used for this spread:

Truly Yours – Art Journal

I used two hand carved stamps on this art journal spread and if you are part of Creative JumpStart 2019  you recognize especially the right one because I showed how to make it in my lesson and some printing ideas.

For this spread I used some Moonlight Duo Ink pads to ink up the stamps and then I cut out bits and pieces with a craft knife.

I love the effect . The pages on the next side I sprayed with some spray paint and then did some journaling.

I loved using the stamps in a different way and to try something different. Whatcha think?

Creative JumpStart Interviews with John, Andrea C, and James

Here is a batch of interviews from some of this year’s newbie Creative JumpStart Artists :)

“Jumping with” is an interview series that I like to do to showcase some of the CJS artists. Each year we always have some new faces or folks that I haven’t spoken with in a while and it’s a fun way for us to get to know the artists a little more before January. Grab a cup of coffee, sit back, relax and enjoy a few interviews with some very talented people.
