Dreamers only

Hello everyone,

Today I am sharing a really simple art journal page; all the time I just keep adding stuff and sometimes it is just nice to have something a little simpler. So that's what I did and it was quite difficult to do...

This is it and I must say I really like how it came out... 

Here's what I did:

I used this chevron shape from the Doodle Mash set. (Link below)

I cut it in two pieces and adhered it to my  paper with gel medium.

Next a couple of layers of gesso.

I decided also to try something else today. Miss DeeDee always uses her Stabilo All pencil. I have had one for about 300 years and haven't really used it so today was the day ! 

First, paint, watered down and sprayed with water too to make it run. 

Next I drew along the chevron with the pencil and used a brush to make it a little grungy... I like it. 

And here is the finished page. I added a little stamping here and there. I used grey and black Archival inks and VivaLasVegaStamps.

This is the set I used :

colored them with the above colors.

I then pulled out a shipping tag and
covered it with the "made" papers
and cut the excess edges off.

I then colored a few flowers with color.

Next I pulled out a

Friday, July 7, 2017 with fairies....

Hello everyone,

Corrie here, and today it is my turn to try and inspire you to use those fabulous UmWow Studio Chipboards. I have only used one in my Art Journal page but it is very effective !

I wanted to use similar colours to the background I have used, which is a gelli printed piece of paper. 

So I used three different embossing powders but in the end I had to use some markers too to get it how I wanted it. 

I added some green and later also some orange (no photo, sorry).

Better with a little green... 

Here is the finished page again. I also used a stencil and first I used Carved Pumpkin distress ink to stencil the hearts but didn't like that too much so I wiped most of it off again. I then took my white pen, put the stencil back on and drew around the faint orange hearts; I do like the result. 

I added some paper, lace ribbon, some stamped and cut out flowers and the little girl is also a stamp. Isn't that amazing. Looks like a photo, doesn't it. (All stamps used by VivaLasVegaStamps)

Here you can see the orange I added to the viewfinder. I used Pitt Big Brush markers for this because it dries permanent. 

I love this sentiment ! 

I have used the vintage viewfinder; you find it HERE

and the heart stencil 

You'll find it HERE

Thank you for stopping by today !
