Saying it with stamps

Hi everyone,

What a week it has been with the bloghop. Thanks for all your visits and your sweet comments. So much fun to read. This week we have a new challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, it's "Say it With Stamps". Whether you use a readymade sentiment stamp, or have fun with alphabet letters, it doesn't matter. As long as there is a stamped text on your project, you're got to go!



I'm so happy with my new Dyan Reavely Creative Journal, so I've decide to make some more pages in it. When I saw the quote from Havelock Ellis on the internet, I thought it was perfect to use in my art journal.
 

The frist thing I do is to cover the spine up with a piece of washi tape so that nothing leaks through. This time I used the Dictionary tape from Bazzill. Because I'm going tp play with sprays I don't gesso the pages. This paper can have a lot of ink without seeping though. With Antique Linen Distress Paint and the circles of the Grunge Cirque stamp I made my first layer. The paint will work as a resist for non permanent ink and sprays. Speaking of sprays, that's my next step. I've use two bright colors, Vibrant Turquiose and Fresh Lime Dylusion Spray. Personally I the splashes and splatters very beautiful. If you like it to blend more, you first mist the pages with a little bit of water.



To bring some texture to the pages, I've played with the Halftone Stencil and some Modeling Paste. Stencils are really my favorite tool to build up layers. So made another with the Letter Jumble Stencil and Neon Pink Dauber.



The letters are Kaiser Craft Grunge Alphabet stamps. These stamps are quite big. Perfect size to make a quote with in my art journal.
