Yet more creepy fun

Standard

Okay, here’s the last one of my creepy pages using my new Stampotique stamps. Fittingly, it’s also the last page in this journal. I expect to use this stamp a lot.
I’m working on other stuff, believe it or not. Trouble is, every time I sit down I get a cat on my lap!

Anything can be stamp

Standard

I was doing some experimenting with Colorwash and Dylusions sprays together in my new art journal. I wet the pages first and then used yellow Dylusions and red and orange Colorwash, then heat set. Loved the look-so then what? I cut up some romaine lettuce for my lunch salad and was reminded what a great stamp the core makes. I used a little cobalt teal acrylic paint I had left on the palette–and I mean a little–and sponged it onto the core. I like how there’s contrast but it doesn’t dominate the spread. I got seriously carried away with the masking and washi tapes, though, and the whole spread became a kind of experiment.
I’m going to link this with the Art Journal Cafe challenge Anything Can Be a Stamp–what great timing!
