How Did I Love Myself Today

I can't believe I forgot to post this - from February!! 

I had a lot of fun making this tag and I LOVE it!!  I had an idea of what I wanted it to look like and this came pretty close!  I used a couple Unity Stamp Company stamp sets and I love this sentiment 'How Did I Love Myself Today?'

Here's a close up of the Faber Castel Texture Luxe in silver applied through a Tim Holtz stencil.

Happy Valentine's Day from Sampson and I :)

You Are Loved

A quick Valentine card for hubby using the Simon Says Stamp February 2015 Card Kit.  I had seen this card online and loved the gold gelato for the background so I dug into my stash of card kits.  It's so shimmery in real life.  The sentiment, heart and arrows are all rub-ons :)

Thinking of You

After attending the Autism crop last weekend I had the urge to play with my alcohol inks.  I'm in need (unfortunately) for some sympathy cards so I thought these would be perfect.

I'm So Glad I Live In A World Where There Are Octobers

Now we're going back to November '16 - another kit from Inky Fairy Designs - this time working on a canvas.  I couldn't be more happy with how it turned out!!  I actually had this displayed in my living room :)

Applied patterned paper with matte medium.

Then applied some chipboard leaves.

Applied gesso to mute everything.

Now the fun part!!  Applying the Dylusions paints with a brush and my fingers!!

Added a some Dina Wakley paint for some depth and drippage :)

Next was to stamp the pumpkins but instead of stamping on the textured canvas I stamped on tissue paper and applied with the matte medium.

The pumpkins were coloured in with the Dylusions paints after custom blending the colours with my fingers.  Then the white paint was added as well to create a base for the sentiment.  The sentiment was stamped in Archival ink and then outlined with a white gel pen.  I was definitely nervous to stamp the sentiment after all this work but thankfully it worked out!!  The pumpkins and the leaves were also outlined with a charcoal pencil for added depth and definition.

7th Art Journal Page - Dare To Be Different

Because I loved this kit so much I had to make a journal page using the sane techniques as the Hoop and Canvas found here :)

Gesso, book paper and multi media.

Gelatos and water to blend.

Pitt pen to ink stamp for background.
