Hello there! I've been wanting to play in my art journal more in search of my own style, my own creative voice as "they" say but I was in desperate need of inspiration so while shopping at the local fabric store, I purchased a few different awesome Stampington & Company magazines: Art Journaling and Somerset Studio. Just what I needed to get my mojo jump started!
I tackled creating a two page spread in my larger size art journal that measures 9" x 12". This is what I came up with:
I wasn't happy with all the black so I pulled my supplies back out and white washed away some of the black shading then doodled here and there. I find the softer lines easier on the eyes ~ which version do you like?To create these art journal pages, I combined various MFT stamps, Die-namics dies, stencils, paints and inks.
I stamped a sentiment from Die-namics Vertical Greetings 11 Die & Stamp Set on a die cut made using a Die-namics Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX die.
All the die cut hearts were made using various sized Die-namics Heart STAX dies.

I randomly stamped text using a stamp from Die-namics First Class Friend Stamp Set Set.
For color inspiration, I joined along with The Play Date Cafe:Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope I've inspired you to create!
Be Sweet ;)
