Blog: Derwent Inktense Blocks

Only One Page or…Viva Las Vegas Stamps

Here is my second project as a guest designer for Viva Las Vegas Stamps. I created an Art Journal Page

I totally fell in love with the Map Background stamp and when I created a transfer of a photo of Yosemite I thought that the Map Background would fit perfectly to the theme and that the roads itself would make perfect connections with the branches that transferred. I used the Bird Head to make connections and also because it had the same visual map feel to me.

I stamped with black Ranger Distress Paint which generated a nice resist to the Watercolor and the Derwent Artbars and Inktense Blocks I used over it.

Have a wonderful day

    Nice journal page. I so wish that I could travel more. When I do travel I enjoy it and also am amused at just how similar the places that I travel to are to each other. I just need to travel across the big pond!

    You stamped the map with distress paints?! Wow. There is so much detail for it being paint. And I love the transfer.

    Fab, Nat!! That stamp is very versatile!, I have looked at your amazing work for a few minutes now appreciating the choices of colour, product and techniques. You have inspired me to get out that transfer paper I bought over a year ago and USE some of my hoard!!
