Another journal page using Distress Oxide inks

I'm really loving the new Distress Oxide inks by Ranger!  Tim Holtz was so right when he said these would be a game changer.  You have to try them!  The colors are amazing and just seem to "light up" when they meet water.  This is an investment worth making in new product. Thanks to @timholtz and @rangerink for their innovation! I've just started my art journal, and it's so fun to just play.  I wish I would have started long ago...(sigh).  #distressoxideinks

"uptown girl AUDREY loves MAKEUP" by Stampingbella

One of my favorite stamp companies is #Stampingbella.  I absolutely adore their Uptown Girls line of stamps.  The artwork on these girls is so much fun to color and arrange on cards!  This is "uptown girl AUDREY loves MAKEUP" for my contribution for their March 17, 2017 Bellarific Friday post.  The theme for this week is to use glitter.  I stamped her onto white cardstock and colored her with Copic markers, then fussy-cut the image and embellished with glitter.

Doing something I love again…

It’s been over 3 years since I blogged anything I made, but I’ve recently been back in my craft room on a regular basis. After some much needed organization, my creative mojo is alive again! I’ve realized I’m definitely one of those people that needs to be somewhat organized in order to be creative. There’s still more organizing to be done, but hey Rome wasn’t built in a day! 😁

So I decided to start an art journal, and here’s a recent page I finished. The image is from a jumbo stamp set by Stampendous, called The Look. I used Paper Artsy Fresco Finish Acrylic paints, Ranger Distress Inks, and Dreamweaver embossing paste.  The quote is by Sophia Loren and says " how you feel on the inside and it reflects in your eyes."
