Let's Paint!

 


 Hello Monday, my friends! And welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Thank you for joining us for the  Let The Music Play  Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is: LET'S PAINT!

I do love to paint! Give me some watercolors, acrylics, aqua pencils, whatever...and I will have fun playing. I really like creating depth with layers of color, and that was my aim today in my art journal. 

LOVE BLOOMS EVERYWHERE


I began with an under layer of yellow, pink and orange acrylic paint.

Next up, a layer of cool colors - blue and purple. 


I went back in with more warm colors, and once dry, I stamped some fun dots with black ink. 


I had to cut a hole into a shower mat, and looked at the piece I cut out...huh! I could use that to make marks, so that is what I did with the green paint.  


I whitewashed the surface, so my stamped images would be visible.  



Once dry, I went in with some Scribble Sticks and water to add more color to the flowers. I splattered on some white paint, then, I also added this beautiful dragonfly from Simon Says Stamp.  



Floral blooms and XOXO stamps...

I made some subtle marks with Simon's Make Your Mark stamps and Pawsitively Saturated inks. 



Layers of color, mark making and design all come together on this art journal page. 
Tis the season of blooms!

Let The Music Play!

 


 

 Hello Monday, my friends! And welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Thank you for joining us for the  MASCULINE  Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is: LET THE MUSIC PLAY!

Are you ready for the latest jazz band?

 Well, THE HIPSTERS are here for your listening pleasure! 


I began by stamping the images onto watercolor paper, then coloring them with markers. 

 Next up, fussy cutting my hipsters. I love the Fine Detail scissors from Simon Says Stamp for fussy cutting.


I sketched instruments and a microphone for the band, added some color, then fussy cut these. 


I wanted to have the band "pop", so drew a circle in my art journal, then laid a line of black paint around it. I smudged it outward with my finger. Once that dried, I did the same with the blue pant. Then, I added lines of orange around the circle, and white dots. Later, I added a circle of bright pink with media gloss.  


Then, it was just a matter of placing my band members and choosing their instruments. I popped the hipsters up, and glued the instruments in place. 



Flute and Sax... 


Trumpet, drums and vocals... 


 Mr. Cool Cat has the vocals covered...


Boom Boom Ben has the drums covered... 


.Madame Isabella rocks the flute... 


Dashing Dan is a whiz with the Sax... 


 and...Monsieur L'Oiseau blasts out on the trumpet...


Yep, The Hipsters are ready to rock the world with some classy jazz!
