Paper Artsy The Great Outdoors art journal spread with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "The Great Outdoors". We are also showcasing Paper Arsty products. We would love the see them used in your project if you have them.

It has been ages ago that I've used my art journal. But this theme was perfect to make a new one, because my old one was full. First of all, I made a bit of texture with Texture Paste and Tile stencil. Then I used 4 different colors of Opal Magic paint: Green-Gold, Rose-Gold, Violet-Gold and Blue-Gold. When everything was dry I added some extra texture with cardstock that I've die cutted with one of the Polka Dots Borders.

Then I added more color with Paper Artsy Infusions: The Sage, Slime, Sunset Beach, Blackcurrant and A Bit Jaded in combination with Mod Podge that I've mixed with water.
The effect of spraying the infusions with water is magical. I have used a lot of infusions. And had to dab it up a little bit here and there.



To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers.
