Hello Crafty Friends.
I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.
I have a combo creation - journal page and card.
On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso. I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps. Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it (seriously).
The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso. Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off. I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be). The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.
I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day. The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest collection as is the sentiment and deer (all coated with gesso to take off the shine). The frame was inspired by the TLC814 challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com - love Anita's idea/sketch. I will be doing it again soon! Inked around the edges and splattered with water to get the distressing. Added a bit of white paint for extra distressing.
Also did these cards this weekend:
This flower card is for several Splitcoaststamper.com challenges including one to use paper towel mop ups. This flower is the last of my paper towel pages that my Grandson Lewis made. He assured me he would come make me some more! I haven't ever liked this flower die (had it forever) but this card made me love it! The background is a monoprint using a plaid stencil.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
