Bad Day | Art Journal Page

Hi there! Thanks for visiting us today! Sometimes life is so hard, and many of us encounter ‘bad days’ for lots of reasons. Our BAD DAY stamp set enables you to show empathy to a friend or to express your own feelings. Lynda is here on the blog today with an emotive art journal page featuring these stamps combined with our DON’T JUDGE stamp set, which work so well together..


Today I am sharing a page made for my Visible Image art journal featuring the ‘Bad Day’ and ‘Don’t Judge’ stamp sets.

I began by stamping the face to the edge of my page and then covering in masking fluid.



I applied distress ink to my craft mat and spritzed with water and dabbed my card in to create a blue and grey mottled effect.



I then used the ‘Scribble’ and ‘Breaking Glass’ stencils and applied Distress oxide ink through them.



I also added words from the ‘Words of Support’ stencil, and some light stamping using the ‘Grunge Tones’ stamp set, and placed the figure from ‘Don’t Judge’ in the centre of the stencilled area.



Once happy with my background it was time to remove the masking fluid. At this point I could have cried myself, as the card I used didn’t like it and tore away as I rubbed it off. Oops!



I fixed the problem by re stamping on fresh card, colouring with watercolours and fussy cutting so I could adhere it over the top.



A little glitter glue made her tear sparkle.





To finish I stamped and embossed the ‘Grunge Tones’ dots around the edge in black to frame the page, and to draw the eye in. I also added a few inspiring words from the ‘Beautiful Soul’ stamp set.

Art Journal Page | Butterflies Transform

Hi there! Ericka is here on the blog today with a stunning art journal page featuring our WINGS OF CHANGE butterflies with the gorgeous TRANSFORM sentiment…


Hello! Today I’m playing with the Visible Image Wings of Change stamp set along with the Words of Support stencil to make a journal page.


Art Journal Page | Butterflies | Stamps | Transform sentiment


I love these butterflies and thought that it would go perfectly with the Words of Support stencil. I started by creating a background using Distress Paint in Kitsch Flamingo, Speckled Egg, and Blueprint Sketch on my gel plate.



I then took the Words of Support Stencil and used a blending tool to add various words on my panel using the Kitsch Flamingo Distress Paint.



I used the Wings of Change set and added the butterflies to my page using WOW! Embossing Powder in Royal Emerald, Punch, and Mojito for added sparkle.



I then used the stencil with a blending foam and applied WOW! Embossing ink to add gold embossed words.



I finished my page with the Transform sentiment and heat embossed it in white.




Supplies


Strathmore Bristol Smooth Card
Wow! embossing powder: bright white ultra fine
Wow! embossing powder: metallic gold rich pale
Wow! Embossing powder trio: Ancient Jewels Raquel Burillo Perez
Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Chipped Sapphire | Kitsch Flamingo
Ranger Ink Tim Holtz Distress Paints: Blueprint Sketch | Kitsch Flamingo | Speckled Egg

Supportive words | stencil | mindfull | compassion | hope



Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week!




Wow what a gorgeous journal page Ericka! Our butterfly stamps look fabulous in the sparkling embossing, and your background is amazing! Thank you

Inhale Confidence | Art Journal Page

Hello! We are back as promised with more wonderful inspiration today. Veerle has created an inspiring art journal page, with a tutorial video too, so sit back, relax and inhale…



I’ve been missing for a while… it have been some crazy couple of weeks with the end of the year happening. But we’ve started 2020 and of course creativity will be a big part again ^.^

So January first… I had my camera on and just went ahead and made my first video for this year.

I think these words are perfect to get a whole new year started. Words to keep in mind. And I know, it’s always easier said than done. But I want to make these a big part of 2020. These and so many other words from the Visible Image word stamps. Let’s make 2020 a strong year ^.^



Stamps Used:


Don’t Judge

Hi there! Up next to inspire you today is the fabulous Martha with a brilliant project and a new video…

visual journal

My previous project for Visible Image was an altered chewing gum box, as usual while working on a gelli plate I clean my brayer on a sheet of copy paper. So at the end of the project I found my self with a nice colored sheet of paper that I could not waste.



Here is the process video of what I created using some wonderful stamp sets by Visible Image:
