Blog: Toledo Foam Stamp

Improve – Art Journal

“How wonderful it is that nobody needs to wait to improve the world.” – Anne Frank

I created a pattern with my Groovy foam stamp and even used the back of it to make the rectangular shapes. I added the hash mark area of the Jazzed foam stamp too, and some of the Fanfare rubber stamps. The whole thing reminds me of some vintage wallpaper – pretty and a little faded.

You can also see my Mini Toledo foam stamp peeking through in blue.

And now it is time to seize the day and start making the world a better place – in any little way that we can.

Here are some of the supplies that I used:

On whom to marry – Art Journal

“Make sure you marry someone who laughs at the same things you do” J.D. Salinger.

Agreed :) and that is one of my favorite things about my marriage- my husband and I can laugh at the same silly things together which probably have other’s just roll their eyes.

I used the Versailles Stencil oversprayed with different acrylic spray paint colors on the top.

For the bottom part I used the Toledo Foam Stamp stamped with some acrylic paint. and then journaled on top.

I used a catalogue image and painted over it with acrylic paints and markers. The faces are a bit …ahem- scary- LOL- but hey…another thing I can laugh about and I am sure my hubs would too ;)

Here are some of the supplies I used in this spread- some links are affiliate links:
