Best Grass in Town – Art Journal

“I’m too busy working on my own grass to notice if yours is greener!”

I thought it would be fun to pull out some of my hand carved stamps again and put them together. There are about 5 hand made stamps in the background which I stamped with a black ink pad. Then I used some magenta and yellow paint and created a glaze with matte medium, spreading it over the background.

I stamped one of my Fan-fare stamps as well as the lady from my Actually I Can set inside the window and added some journaling with a fountain pen.

Here are some of the supplies I used:

Love to be Home – Art Journal

“Oh, how she loved to be home!” – that’s me in the window ;)

For this spread I used acrylic paints and collage paper, but for the architectural elements I created hand carved stamps. I also filled in with some of my Fanfare stamps.

I’m so in love with our new home that it definitely inspired this page. So I put my Millie stamp in the window because every home needs some homebodies :)

At the Corner of Good and Bad – Art Journal

I had a lot of fun with this spread. I carved a big stamp of a building close by here in Jersey City with a mural by Shepard Fairey and used it for bags I made for the holiday market. But then of course I also wanted to use it in my journal.

I printed on a page that I had previously used as a “clean up” page and then painted over the tamped images with acrylic paints.

I added some hand drawn imagery and some of my Stamps as well

I love the contrast of very clean and fine line stamps and then the bold hand carved stamp. And all the texture – actual and optical that I created with brushstrokes, and spray paints.

That was fun :)
