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.

A really emotive art journal page, we love how you have combined these stamps and stencils, and the grunge stamped edging really enhances it. The sparkle on the tear drop is beautiful. Thank you Lynda ♡
