Artful Play... 41

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, March 29, 2012 @ 12:25 AM | , , , , ,

Hi there! I had the day off from work, I'm caught up on DT projects and I've been wanting to play with some ink! I pulled out my Art Journal along with various products that I've been hoarding and this is what I came up with:
This page was made using an assortment of products. The sweet bird and birdcage was cut using the Sizzix Tim Holtz birdcage/bird die along with Tim Holtz Grungeboard. The birdcage was painted with Ranger Acrylic Gold sponge dauber and the bird was first inked using Tim Holtz Broken China and Tea dye Distress inks then a layer of Distress Rock Candy was applied to give it a crackled appearance.
The fun SCRABBLE like tiles were cut using Spellbinders Mix'd Media Playtime dies. I hope Spellbinders makes an ENTIRE tile alphabet! How fun would that be?!
I recently "discovered" a new challenge: Stamper Sunday managed by the very talented designer: Hels Sheridan. I'm entering this in the current challenge which is to create a project focusing on the theme: BIRDS.


Many thanks for visiting ~ hope you have a great day! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Delta Music Note BG, Tim Holtz
Dies: Spellbinders Mix'd Media Playtime, Sizzix birdcage, Vagabond machine
Ink: lots of Ranger: Color Washes, Distress inks, Rock Candy, Acrylic Paint, Perfect Pearls, Liquitex ink and Gesso
Paper: Ranger Grungeboard
Others: Crafter's Workshop stencils
