Stampotique challenge art journaling page.

This Art Journaling page I made eminated from a quote I heard from Donna Downey who had found it on the Internet and for some reason, it really spoke to my sister and me. We have these sister challenges now and again, and this quote was just perfect as s starting point. Now the materials used were totally free, the only rule was: use the quote. And straight away I thought: Stampotique stamps!!
I started with applying pink acryllic paint on a non gessoed surface with an old creditcard. After drying I added gesso here and there, also with a credit card. Then I sprayed Dylusions Squeezed Orange which gave a different effect on the pink, the gesso and on the parts of the paper that weren't covered by anything. Love it. I stamped over it with green Memento and made striped with the side of the creditcard and gesso and black acrylic paint. The pink circles were made by adding some Dylusions Bubblegum Pink to my leftover gesso and the top of the Dylusion bottle. Then I took a stncil and texture paste and made the random squares which slightly took on the colour of the Dylusions I used.
Here are the two pages side by side. As you can see I also stamps some flowers here and there which I coloured in with a brush and Dylusions; they have a pink rhinestone heart.

Now my lovely Stampotique crafter girl was stamped on Copics paper and also coloured in with Copics. I then cut her out and added the details around her (like the fraying of her dress and stockings) with a Copic fineliner. I als used some washi tape as the ground for her to stand on and here and there as extra accent.
Right, I hope you enjoyed my first post, I enjoyed posting it. And now I'm off to enter some challenges. Have great Sunday, hugs Frea

  10. Hoi Frea,
    Wat leuk dat je een bezoekje aan mijn blog hebt gebracht en voor je lieve berichtje.
    Leuk dat je begonnen bent met art journalen en dat je een cusrsus gezichten tekenen gaat volgen. Mijn beste tip voor jou is, probeer elke dag een gezicht te tekenen. Dat kan al iets heel simpels zijn met een pen of grijspotlood. Je zult zien dat je al snel hele mooie gezichten uit je handen toverd. Heel veel plezier ermee...
    Liefs, Melanie
    ( ben nu ook volger van jou :) )

  11. Of course I enjoyed it!! It is freaking gorgeous!! You really do excel in art don't you my friend?? It is amazing that you just recently started doing these kinds of mixed media projects because you are fantastic at them!! Can't wait until the next one... hugs, Stacy

  12. hoi Frea,
    ben hier volger van geworden....niet dat het mijn stijl is qua stempels.zoals dat meisje....vind ik maar een aparte stempel net als de gezichten in de cirkel. zou ik zelf niet aanschaffen. maar hoe je er creatief/kleurgebruik er mee om gaat vind ik wel mooi om te zien. kunstig!
    soms zit ik er ook aan te denken om ermee te beginnen. ik heb nog een oud 'vergeeld tekenagenda' (zonder lijntjes) waar ik iets kan gaan tekenen en kleuren/stempelen. heb nog kinderverf!! haha... maar goed....eerst mijn arm maar eens beter worden. want dat gaat nog niet goed )):
    succes ! groetjes
