Let's Add Some Texture!

Hello Monday my friends and welcome back to this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - ADD SOME TEXTURE! I hope this finds you and your loved ones in good health. We are showcasing one of my favorite companies this week - STAMPERIA! I am a huge fan of their designs, and I even tried some new products for this challenge. 

We welcome our guest designer for April - Tracey Sabella of GraceScraps! It is lovely to have you with us this month, Tracey! 


I am looking to the heavens this month! Astronomy is a perfect social distancing activity for these times. Find a clear dark night and go out and observe the stars. This month, the "Seven Sisters" are visible, and Venus is super bright. And...on April 7th. it's the SUPERMOON, the largest full moon of the year. So why not go out and bathe yourself in moonlight?

It all started here... I decided to try out the texture molds from Stamperia, and checked out a few videos before I started. I used the Pasta Sculpture paste to fill them, then set them aside to dry for a couple of days. (I think drying time will depend on how humid your area is) I learned I need to make these well ahead of when I will need them...oh, guess that means I need to plan, LOL!

I am working with Stamperia's Cosmos line for the most part on my page. I added in some stenciling with Gilt.

These pages are so beautiful, it's hard to add anything!

I cut a piece of the texture mold to use, and started by dabbing on a layer of Sedona, then Rosy, and finished with Peacock. 

Texture detail...

I layered some tags with the texture mold.

Look at how deep that texture is!

Owls are creatures of wisdom, and I can sure use some wisdom right now!

We are all connected, even when we have to stay apart....

Sacred Geometry, Stardust, Full Moon, Owls...

I hope you've enjoyed my art journal page and are inspired to join us this week in our challenge! If you have any of the wonderful Stamperia products, we would love to see them, but as always, use whatever you have. Stay creative and healthy! 

Please Note:
As you may know, the  Simon Says Stamp Store is accepting new orders, but have longer shipping times for the moment due to the coronavirus. With this in mind we have made the difficult decision to suspend the $50 voucher for this challenge.

We know that many people are staying safe at home and we would love it if you would continue to enter the challenges and have fun! We are all in this together!



A GREAT place to shop!
