I love art 68

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, September 22, 2013 @ 9:01 PM | , ,

Hi there! Hope you had a great weekend! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! In celebration of STAMPtember  this week the DT is featuring a project made using a Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® ART JOURNALING KIT by SHARI CARROLL! The challenge for this week is to use ANY Simon Says Stamp exclusive product in a project.

Using MANY fab items that I received in my kit, I got a little messy and inked up the journal covers:
Here's a view of both the front and back covers:
To begin, I applied the Gesso from the kit on the journal which is also included in the kit:
Then using the fun stencil included in the kit along with various colors of Color Shine sprays I sprayed the journal covers repeating the process with additional colored sprays listed below:
then I randomly stamped the pretty flower stamp included in the kit Gesso:
I applied Altered Orange ink included in the kit along with the stencil to add interest to the background then doodled around them:
I painted and sprayed a piece of the cardstock using the paints that were included in the kit
then embellished it using the clasp, stickers and tile which are ALL included in the kit. Using Simon Says Stamp LARGE Heart Set Craft dies and dictionary page from the kit, I cut a variety of hearts:
then painted them using a couple colors of acrylic paint from the kit along with the red from my stash:
More stenciled circles and another die cut heart:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you like my project. For some amazing inspiration, please continue the hop and be sure to visit Michelle Zerull.
