Craft Stamper TIMI - January Challenge Inspiration

cstimi january inspiration

Hi everyone, super excited to share my first project as DT member for Craft Stamper's TIMI Challenge Blog  :)  The challenges are always anything goes and the only rule is that you have to incorporate stamping in your project somehow. Super easy and fun, right? I've made the above art journal page in my pocket journal. Let me share with you how I made it.

I took a piece of scrap book paper on which I already had applied some texture paste through a stencil. Then applied some color to it with iridescent shimmer paints which I home made with Glazing medium and Finnabair Mica in pink and blue. When that was dry I poured over some black acrylic paint and glaze and wiped it off with a baby wipe to create the shadow effect.

Then stamped various stamps in the background for more texture. The stamps used are from paper Artsy and Stamplorations.

Decided on the focal point being the middle gibson girl (from Lost Coast Designs) and the sentiment you are beautiful (from Viva Las VegaStamps!) The right I colored in with alcohol markers and cut out the middle face. The left is stamped on tissue paper and adhered with soft matte gel.

When this dried I cut the page to size for my pocket journal and adhered the colored face.

I added more stamping over the tissue paper and a bit more paint to blend the composition together. I love how she emerges from the misty crowd.
