Sprinkles and Splatters art journal spread

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Sprinkles and Splatters".


It's always nice to be messy in an art journal, so for this challenge I made a spread once again. I started with the Jane Davenport Rub Ons and Tape Strips (thanks Marzena) that I had left from the previous challenge and over it I applied Opal Magic in Green-Gold, Blue-Gold and Rose-Gold paint. From there I played around with a 49 and Market stamp set called Captured Adventures.

 

The Dot Fade stencil I used with Texture Paste that I made black by mixing it with Black Soot Distress Paint. When it was dry I started using sprays. I started with Distress Spray Stain, but this did not want to dry properly on the Opal Magic. So I tried Dylusions Spray, and that gave me amazing drips. But when I used Dylusions Spray on the other side, the same thing happened as with the Distress Spray Stains. It appears to be the combination of Distress Spray Stains and Dylusions Spray. But beware it doesn't really dry properly on this kind of slik surface. This combination of Opal Magic paints with sprays is not one I'll do again.

Tape it Up card with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Tape it Up". We're also showcasing Jane Davenport products! So if you have any, please use them, if you don't that's okay too.


This is the first time that I worked with Jane Davenport products and I had a lot of fun with them (Thanks, Marzena!). The Tape Strips are very nice, especially because they are really made from paper so they work well with ink. And the Rub Ons are fabulous, especially because the ladies have a white background, so they can be added on every color surface. Anyway, on with my card. I started to add the Tape Strips randomly and after that I applied a layer of Collage Medium mixed with water to seal them in.

 

For some texture I applied Crackle Paste with the Bubbles stencil. When it was dry I used Infusions to give it some color. First a base layer with Collage Medium mixed with water and the Infusios. And then only the Infusions with water. It's currently very hot here in the Netherlands, and it was a challenge to do all that drying with the heat tool. But the show must go on ...;).

 

On Vellum paper I used one of the Rub On ladies, and cut it out with the Stitched Ovals. But the vellum got damaged while I tried to get it out of the die. Don't  know why that is, and I only have that with the Stitched Ovals. The paper really sticks there in very tight and it's always difficult to get it out alright. I thought baking paper would help, so I used the smaller oval die, but it still was damaged when it came out of the die, not as much though. I wanted a frame around it, so that would solve my problem. The smaller oval isn't in the same proportion so that doesn't work to make a frame. So I used the same size and traced the inside of the die and cut it out with a Fiskars Craft Knife.
