Hello there, I'm back again with my DT offering for Fashionable Stamping Challenges where our theme this fortnight is 'Journalling' chosen by my lovely teamie Ellie. You don't have to do a journal page, you create something inspired by journalling, but of course you do need to include rubber stamping as we don't allow digi stamps. Our lucky winner will receive a generous prize from our lovely new sponsor Leo from Flonzcraft.
For my project, I bravely made a start on my brand spanking new art journal that I bought recently from Chocolate Baroque. I created the background using shades of turquoise and magenta PanPastel and Winter Dawn gilding flakes over flitter glu applied through a crafters' workshop template. The background was the easy bit, I didn't have a clue what to do then, but after I'd been chatting to a group at work about the fact that even when life is pretty crap, there are usually some things that bring a smile to your face - I came up with the idea of 'bubbles of happiness'. I stamped some rings with the bottom of a paint pot and then decided to add some flowers using more Maimeri Iridescent medium, magenta PanPastel and another Crafters' Workshop template.
I added some stamping with gorgoeus silhouette stamps from Flonzcraft, stamped on tissue paper and applied with Maimeri Matte medium to represent some of my bubbles of happiness:
I also stamped some dandelions and bees using Chocolate Baroque stamps. Now my little garden scene was finished I used a stampotique stamp to represent me and used derwent pastel pencils to add some shading the the 'bubbles'
