Have you ever started out making one thing, then completely ended up making something else entirely? Well that is what I did with this project. I was going to show you a simple stamp worked into a layout idea for hidden journal. But in doing so I realized how gorgeous this simple stamp by Kaiser really was. So, I got out the mixed media supplies and decided to make a new 'Art Journal Page.
Assemble a good stiff art board weight paper, Gesso or artist dimensional paste. Layer a patch of gesso or paste in the area you want to create your 'stone effect'. Make it with some depth. Allow to dry till you can touch to top without sticking to it. NOTE: you do not want to dry till it is hard, so your stamp will make an impression.
Spray randomly with your choice of mists and inks, you may want to cover the area around your creation so you can manipulate the colors around your piece later. See a walk through of the finished piece on my personal blog fairyrocks.blogspot.com
Daub off and add more color till you are satisfied with the look. Allow to dry completely.
NOTE: Use your imagination, this stamp has a nice deep impression base, have a look at all the new texture stamps in the store. The possibilities are endless.
Here is the finished background for my journal page. I added in some spray background cover, crafters workshop trees, stamps. I will journal on top about the photo soon.Supply Suggestions:
Rocks Texture by Kaiser
Art Journal Paper
Glimmer Mist ' in stone colors'
Gesso or Art Medium
Crafters Workshop Templates
Large leaf stamp
Spray in a sky, use a paper towel to spread it around, do a ground spritz using a dry towel to move the ink around as well. Remember this is a background and does not have to be perfect. Lightly trace in your trees using a template. Then stamp around the path , and bottom of trees with a nature stamp using permanent ink.
I have added the journaling about the 'Playhouse'.
I haven't forgotten my promised RAK, so comment on this post to be entered to win when I am done the work on the Playhouse, Click HERE to read the posting history.
